No, you still shouldn't call it RegEx in Lua. It's simply NOT a regular
expression -- it's pattern matching. There no sub-expressions, and so
it's not a regular expression.

Really. I explained this the last time you claimed it was "RegEx." [1]
Calling it a "RegEx" is deceptive; how are you "screwed" by not calling
it what it isn't? Just call it what it is, and you're fine.
