It should probably be noted that the regex code is still non-functional
(i.e. It doesn't work right) which is why it's not discussed in the
docs/polite company. The fact that it could hang was nasty, but it's not
even supposed to work yet, so I wouldn't put a whole lot of faith in it
working even if it doesn't spin the computer off into navel-staring mode.
