in thread Strange regex to test for newlines: /.*\z/

One problem tho, the following all match the string "\n":

/.*/ /\z/ /.{0}\z/
It's possible that \z is meant to introduce some specialness when combined with .* (or possibly some other quantifiers), but I haven't seen it mentioned in any docs. This is either a bug, or a very poorly documented feature.
