Hi all,

I'm using mc since ages and can't live without it anymore.
However there are 2 Features, that I badly need:

1) Find File: Skip Directory matching a pattern
I often search very large filesystems for a file and in many cases there are 
huge directories, that I would like to skip while searching.

With find I would do:
find / -name 'skipme' -prune -o -name findme -print
(This won't descend skipme)

2) mcedit (cooledit?): regular expression search/replace
At the moment I can only search for regular expressions, but can't use the 
subexpressions in the replacement.

Is it possible to implement this at all, or are there reasons that would 
prevent it?
What does it cost? :)
