Great!  We firmly believe "good editor" should not be mutually 
exclusive with "IDE", so this is nice to hear.

I'll try to fix this before 2.1 final.  Yours isn't the first 
report of this.

This is harder to fix so it won't be in 2.1.  In general, we want 
to add this sort of look-ahead match highlighting for all our 
search interfaces, and vi search will get it at the same time.

Please let me know if/when you run into problems w/ macros.  We 
tried to get everything as close to Vim as possible but I'm sure 
there are still inconsistencies in how we define the boundaries 
of actions for '.' repeat and some actions may not work correctly 
in macros in general.  Needless to say, this has been quite a bit 
of work to get right (or almost right ;-).

Thanks for the feedback,
