Hm, -1 for this suggestion. The standard Lua pattern matching is good
enough for most things, and it's easy to grab the lpeg extension and
just use it ;)

I'm not prejudiced against lpeg, haven't _really_ tried it out to be
honest, but it would make Lua significantly fatter.

well, when using lua embedded in an app one can leave lpeg out then

anyhow, lpeg is a rather substantial feature and adds much to the power of lua and it's not that fat (at least the code looks incredibly efficient, way less than any regexp library)
