Word highlighting boundaries

Can we hook into the underlying editor at the level of word highlighting when double-clicking with the mouse, holding down Ctrl+Shift+ArrowKey?, etc..?

I recall that in Visual Studio, where you're likely to have camelCase variables, if you started at the beginning of a word such as:


and did Ctrl+Shift+RightArrow?, it would first highlight up to 'my', then 'myLong', then 'myLongVariable', etc..

Similarly, sometimes I'd really like to be able to tell Padre to stop on underscores_in_the_middle_of_words.

Anyone know if we can do this? It might be something handy to have either as a global setting, or per document type.
