For the record: I'm not sure whether 'make distcheck' succeeds,
because the 'suspend' test failed - it does this about 75% of the time
for me :-(

Right, indeed that is the whole point.

I believe the PCRE syntax is a superset of the boost::regex syntax,

differences mostly affect people doing Very Clever Things with
regexes, that probably no one will do in an ignore file.  One hopes.)
