Hi there,

On #irc, there was a discussion about why globbing wasn't working when using normal in a rescue image and the underlying cause was that the regexp module wasn't loaded. I think it would be a good idea to either make regexp an explicit (so it's reflected in the modules.lst) or weak dependency (normal does a mod_load of regexp) so that users aren't baffled by the missing globbing functionality. Any comments?
