Some configuration files use a hierarchical format where a single line might be interpreted differently based on the context:

[data]
dir = "..."
[tmp]
dir = "..."

Currently all regular expressions are applied to a single line so these cases cannot be handled.

Proposal: Add optional keys after and before (naming to be decided) to allow specifying regular expressions that have to be match before / must not be found before the actual search expression.
