Trying to keep the syntax consistent across syslog-ng items, I recommend something like

match("expr" option(nocase, exact, replace(text), global))

nocase - case insensitive match
exact - match the exact text for cases wherey you want to mtach the .*$?^ characters
replace - replace the matched text with the included text. this may have effect on successive matches
	  this may include back substitution from the expression.
global - match/replace all occurances of the expression.

Some of these features may be reserved for version 2.1
