Amazing! It runs very fast! Here it runs for 0,6 seconds on the standard set of 1000 numbers (compared to 2.2 sec my code). With growing the set of numbers they are comparable in speed - for 50000 numbers they are equal 13.7 seconds. It seems that I am hurt by the regex compile time.

I think your code is better than mine because :
1. you do not relay on some experimental features and recent optimizations;
2. The difference is in how we get the possible correct continuations of the number. My code generates them with the hairy regular expression. Your code generates all possible continuations and filter only the correct ones trough hash lookup.
3. less is more
