    release_handler:find_script/4 to use 're' matching in .appup scripts
    The function release_handler:find_script/4 locates an .appup script
    for a given application, and searches it for the matching up- or
    downgrade script (given OldVsn). The original implementation of this
    function used lists:keysearch/3 to find the matching script, but since
    the .appup files nowadays may contain regexps instead of distinct versions,
    that approach no longer works.
    This patch uses re:run/2 to find a matching script instead.
