in reply to meaning of /o in regexes

A touch of history might shed some light on the matter too. The /o modifier existed quite a while before we were blessed with the ability to assign those compiled regular expressions to variables via qr// which, if I recall correctly, wasn't available in a stable release until 5.005.
