in thread Regex code assertion should be able to fail

Thanks, but that's the wrong usage of assertion.

I'm taking about assertions in regular expressions. These are conditions that must hold true if the regex match is to continue. If the condition is not met, no exception is thrown, the re engine just backtracks and tries to find another match.
