I was thinking along the same lines of your classic web bases search
where you enter some key words and select and/or, case, full word, etc.
and translate that to a regular expression as required to perform the
actual search. Exposing regular expressions is probably not what the
typical user is going to comfortable using. Although it might be a nice
advanced option for users who know how to use them.

My votes for logical+wildcard and regexp search.
