At present, rangeset are only available as macro. I
already saw some wishes to add some more intelligence
to this.
The main and most obvious use of rangeset is to
highlight strings that are found with search functions.
I did it myself in a macro which replaces "Find
selection / Find again" but I still miss it for all
other search functions (Find dialog, Find selection
backward,... and especially incremental search in the
status bar).

These are the 2 reasons for me to ask these capability
to become part of the standard NEdit:

- There is no hook to call a macro to highlight all
that matches the string typed while doing incremental
search.

- Everybody will be writing quite the same macros to
do the same things (except those who won't be able to
do it and who will cry they miss this great
functionnality).
