A bit of side question but this regex code seems very old (Hashtable, 
Vector ...) and I'm wondering how feasible it would be to replace it 
completely with java.util.regex. Joe might know if this has ever been 
discussed upstream (and I appreciate there is a desire to keep the code 
the same where possible).
