  • I saw the volume on bootstrap, and I don't have time.

    PS I did privately send skud some suggestions. IIRC the suggesstions were to change split() to match people's expectations (that is the most commonly reported "bug"), have single-quoted strings be literally what you wrote (currently \\ is \ and \' embeds a '), an extension to the RE engine to cause it to perform (potentially slow) checks for poorly written REs (find how many ways there are of matching the pattern to the string - if there are too many print a warning), and possibly another couple things.
