Dear Shawn,

Thank you for the patch. POSIX states[1] that "The ed utility shall support basic regular expressions, as described in XBD Basic Regular Expressions", but yours looks like a nice extension that could be even eventually standardized by POSIX. I'll implement it ASAP and will publish a new release.

BTW, there is no public repository for GNU ed. Patches are a rare occurrence here.
