    Right down to the number of characters.

    I find \s\s+ slightly more obvious than \s{2,} but that is entirely a matter of taste.


    (Something tells me that there is a remote chance that Ilya treats the {2,} construct as more complex, falls into a general case, and might not always optimize it as well. If you ask him, please tell me the answer.)
