  I counted 212.  I set MAXRULES to 220 and it didn't complain:

[spc]lucy:~/source/parse/Lua>lua email.lua 

  So that's good.  But the code uses the 0.10.2 re syntax for table
captures---I thought 0.12 supports it but I can't find exactly where it
states that.

  Maybe bump MAXRULES to 250 or 300?

  You almost guess right 8-)
