    [Corion]: I spent parts of yesterday digging into Filter::Simple to make it not change the line numbers of unfiltered code, but I think I need regex help (which will come in a SoPW I guess). I tried @lines = /((?:"...."|[^" \n]+)\n)/gs, but that matched on...
    [Corion]: ... foo "\0\0\0\n" bar\n by matching the first \n instead of matching the four-bytes-in- double-quotes part
    [Corion]: ... and I still don't understand why ;)
    [Corion]: This is because Filter::Simple does some string-trickery, replacing all string literals with "quoted packed numbers"
