actually an RFC colud be useful.
Stop with the marketing gag and lets explain why:
what the module offers is a kind of synthetic data generation language, i.e. it is a mean to describe a set of values in a very very condensed form.
Think about a Regex pattern that instead of filtering the matching data it actually produces it,
i.e. for example the rule:
produces the array '00' , '01' ,'10' , '11'.
Unfortunately regex syntax cannot be used 1:1 for this purpose, so I had to define my own syntax and build de facto a kind of mini data generation language. An RFC about this language could be useful.
Do you have a suggestion where I could put it?
