sure, my dream is that I'll become a big regex hacker, that I'll merge
dfa into regex, then I'll merge Boyer-Moore into regex, then I'll
enhance regex to understand that the buffer is incomplete (needed for
proper implementation of RS in awk), and then I'll get to this one.

But I have to wake up and work on grep.

Have a nice day,
