Dear Haskell Cafe,

With the regex announcement, I wanted to try get other folks' perspective
on what has been happening with the Haskell regular expression libraries.

I have been in turn impressed at how good the engineering of the Regex
packages while gobsmacked by how difficult the traditional Text.Regex API
is to use.

In this blog post,

I rather cheekily speculate that the Haskellers perhaps have been a bit
disdainful of regular expressions (not important in a language capable
of doing proper parsing, etc.).

What do you think?
