I remember I was confused by this. May I suggest a simple solution:

- Use keyword matching as default (ie like now really)
- If something looking like a regexp was entered then enter a simple y-or-n-p and ask the user if it is a regexp.

Hm. That is for interactive use of course. Maybe a parameter too ...

Well, I do not know if this is the right solution. Whatever we decide on help functions must not be confusing!
