Okay, two things:
1. Brewing beer is way harder than regular expressions.
2. Both brewing beer and regular expressions are things that you can
actually learn how to do.

You're acting as if regexp is some other level of godly existence that
is impossible for some mere mortal to achieve. FFS man, we're talking
about figuring out * and ? and . and such here. Parenths for $matches.
That's all there really is to it for these purposes. It's just not all
that freakin' complicated.

Yes, I assume human beings have brains. For you to assume that people
who write themes are barely capable of tying their shoelaces is what
is really condescending here.

And with that, we're done. I'm not going to bother to respond to you
on the list anymore, so I suggest you just drop it.
