I'm a fan of the simplest solution to do the job. Why use lpeg if
plain Lua does the job, in a way that anybody can understand? Just
because it is possible to use lpeg, does not mean that it is the
appropriate solution.  Remember that a robust solution would need
proper error handling, which takes special care in lpeg.
