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.
