Thanks! I got this to work.
It would be really helpful if the documentation in Hackage pointed to the examples in RWH (or had similar examples inline). It's not helpful that the documentation on hackage for the context information is out of date (or at least, it says it is out of date). The hapless user (ie, me) is reduced to reading the source code to figure out what different kinds of things the regex matching operators can return.
