I agree with both of you. There is no proble doing it with the 
interpreted regexps but I haven't yet looked at doing it in the compiled 
version. and the difference in speed makes it worth it.

Soon I will have a parse transform which compiles at compile-time. Saves 
ou doing explicit regexp:compile.
