You're right that things have come a long way. I'm not scared of the tokeniser any more, for example. The regex code still gives me the willies, but I guess you're happier with it than you were in 2002. :-) The most unsatisfactory thing about the PCRE recursion code is that the match data is still a plain list, when morally it ought to be a tree. If we could get that sorted, you could write an entire parser as a single regex!

    The recursive regex patch was applied to blead as 28939. If you feel up to it it would be cool if you could review the documentation on it and make whatever changes you think are needed based on your experience with the PCRE stuff.
