Reworking of the code for notifications, highlights and ignores
After a small conversation with Tucos on the irc, it was pointed out that notifications, Highlights and Ignore are all implemented separately despite using the same underlying stuff.
I'd like to propose a rework the quassel notification system to unify Notifications/Highlight/Ignore on the back end to reduce code duplication/overhead and make it easier to implement new features in a consistent manner.

As of 0.13 (as of this comment, -rc1 is out), highlights are being transitioned to core-side (called remote highlights) and include highlight ignore rules as well. Another improvement is the unifying (maybe not 100% but quite a bit) of the text matching code for highlights and ignores along with regex caching to improve the speed of message checking and buffer switching significantly.

There's also some details on the Quassel wiki as to how the new pattern matching works: https://bugs.quassel-irc.org/projects/quassel-irc/wiki/Pattern_matching
