Welcome to the quote file (again), David!  And Barry, thanks for
posting your quote; if you hadn't posted it, I would have.  We mustn't
forget the third Unicode reference:

I never realized it before, but having looked that over I'm certain
I'd rather have my eyes burned out by zombies with flaming dung sticks
than work on a conscientious Unicode regex engine.
