> I once in a while frustrated by compound Kanji words. They typically dissect them in smallest chunks but often the unit I want to edit / replace it the whole compound word. English has the same issue however with compound words. City of “Palo Alto” is two words however they are inseparable. “Palo Alto town hall” is four words, etc. Only the difference is that word boundaries are not visible (+ ambiguities) in Japanese text.

I agree that a greedy match is a good default behavior. However, there are also cases I just want to match one stem of a compound (like 田舎 in 田舎育ち), and a lazy match would be useful.
