As I understand it, the issue is not changing what regexp in coldc 
does, but how itis implemented, yes?

I personally like coldc 's regexp for the way it allows me to specify 
what I want extracted.  Its very mud-friendly.  How it is implemented 
I don't care so much about BUT the same expression should produce the 
same reult on all ColdX implementations.  How it does it IMO shoudl 
be left up to the porter/implementor.
