The point is about \\W.  \\W matches any character that is not a
word-constituent.  I want `:-)' to become a smile if it is followed by any
of `\\W' but not ')'.  If I put it as "\\(:-?)\\)[^)]", then even strings
like "smile_within:-)strings" also get smileys.  So I am looking for a way
to specify "characters in \\W but no ')' in the language of regexps".
