I don't like the idea of a global variable to alter regexp syntax.
I think that some sort of operator would be better.
It could be an escape sequence for "any character" or it could
be a kind of parenthetical grouping which alters the meaning of a period
inside it.

What would be convenient in the rx syntax?
That question might be helpful to finding the best way to
handle this in string-regexp syntax.
