True, you could do all of that quite easily as a regex.

Speaking of pcre, how's the performance impact of that looking? I know 
there were a lot of hesitations over performance concerns, and then some 
later discussions of how to speed it up, but I've not heard anything since. 
Anyone been playing with it lately?

It'd be great to have regex rules, but it'd also have to not be orders of 
magnitude slower to do em.
