I am also considering making the return value for 'match_regexp()' simply 
be '1' or '0', where it has an extra argument that can be specified, 
telling it to give you the index.  With the addition of 'regexp()' there 
is not really much of a use for having the indexes--and changing the 
default behavior of match_regexp() would optimize it a bit for simple 
regexp matching where you do not care about HOW the regexp matched (you 
just care that it did).
