Random notes on R12B-3 (June 11, 2008) documentation
of the re module
http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/re.html

1. misspelling of 'be' in the sentence
"There should bee no need to go directly to the PCRE library documentation"

2. Need to define 'opaque' as used in

 mp() = Opaque datatype containing a compiled regular expression.

Hopefully it means something other than as defined by
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/opaque

"2 a*:* hard to understand or explain <*opaque* prose>
b*:* obtuse <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/obtuse>,
thickheaded <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/thickheaded> "

A link to where opaque is defined would be helpful.
