question is: why doesn't Geany allow non-greedy matching, is there any work being done to address this, is there any easy way around it/patch to allow for this functionality
"better search & replace regex support" is on the TODO list. The current regex engine is the default Scintilla one, but it should be possible to switch this out to the same POSIX-compliant regex engine used for Geany's tagmanager. It just needs someone to figure out the details of how to do this (or ask on the Scintilla ML).
