Having both does not make much sense to me, as I hinted in my original
e-mail. While newbies can start off with Lua patterns instead of regex,
most programming languages use regex anyway and having to juggle two
pattern matching syntaxes as a beginner may be expecting too much. I'm
just thinking out loud though.
