Find and Replace: using regular expressions

Greetings!


Is would be great to have the capability of using regular expression syntax (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expression and https://docs.python.org/2.4/lib/re-syntax.html) in Find and Replace dialog.


For example, I want to convert all Date fields from «1989/2/1/» to «02.01.1989».

Using the RegEx syntax this query would be like this:

Find: ([0-9]{4})\/([0-9]{1,2})\/([0-9]{1,2})\/

Replace: \2.\3.\1


What do you think about this idea?


Thank you.
