This is non-trivial since the Find and Replace fields are system
controls, so we’d need to override system behavior to try and achieve
this (not something I have looked into, but in general customizing
NSTextField is not easy).

Is that a space in the Replace field? The current nightly build uses a
different background color for matches, that way, one can see if
leading/trailing space is being matched.
