My guess is that others also have interesting functions they might
contribute. But before that we need to be sure we know how regular
expressions are going to be overloaded (or whatever) so that they
interoperate smoothly with strings. I'll be interested in hearing John
Maddock's views on that. Ditto case insensitive issues.

Actually, "replace" is from Jens Maurer's regression.cpp code. I extended
it to "replace_all". I'm finding both very useful.
