I dont know why I didn't realize this earlier quinn, but the problem with:
    ;match_regexp("\$test", "we $test this")

Is that you have a coldc compilation layer between the function call and
setting the string "\$test".  To get around it you just do:

    ;match_regexp("\\$test", "we $test this")
