OK, having seen that problem: do users generally consider "case
insensitive" a saner default for leafnode-2? It's slower (may be
noticable on 2 GHz machines), but should not hurt too much.
(leafnode 2 currently compiles filters only with PCRE_MULTILINE)

If the default were changed, (?-i) could be used in a pattern to make it
case sensitive again.
