For the most part, I doubt it; they're questions, not answers.  There
were a couple of suggestions about clarifications that could be made
to the manual, but someone who knows which of the possible ambiguous
meanings is correct needs to do that :).

There is one thing I can say: the manual says that "^" only works at
the beginning of a regexp and after "\\(" and "\\|", but it also works
after "\\(?:".  The same goes for "$".
