You posted an #asRegex example in talking to Eliot about inlining recently. I’ve printed it out and plan to play with it next week. 
If you have any more thoughts or examples using the VB-Regex package, I hope you’ll post some here. I’m very interested in this stuff.

For the future, I also would like to consider named groups & depending features). But before I will invest unnecessary time into the Regex-Core package, I have one question:
