RegEx search should support lookaround.

It would be great if RegEx search were lookaround aware.

It currently allows me to use lookaround, but considers the lookaround "part of the result" not a zero-width assertion as it should be. For example this search:
Foo(?>Bar)

should (and does) find instances of 'Foo' immediately followed by 'Bar' in my document. But if it were truly lookaround-aware, it would only select 'Foo' as the "search result", instead of 'FooBar'.
