That's pretty much true whether `re-' is used
as prefix or is elsewhere in the name, as long
as it is set off using a hyphen.  E.g.,

(No, it's not always the case: `ange-ftp-re-read-dir',
`message-strip-subject-re'.  But some functions that
use `re-' are anyway misnamed - should be
`ange-ftp-reread-dir', for example.)
