i will be very pleased if it will be possible to write just String as
regexp and don't worry (and even don't know!) about existence of
different regexp engines until i actually need specific one:
"Hello" =~ "el+"
pack "Hello" =~ "el+"
while for requesting specific regex engine your syntax is really great!
