Once upon a time, Jamie Zawinski said, Some people, when confronted with a problem, think, "I know, I'll use regular expressions."
Now they have two problems. BTW: Jeffrey Friedl dug into the history and
found that someone said it about awk before jwz said it about regular expressions! I seem to have developed a fascination for new variants of this joke, especially where the concept being
referenced is important to the structure of the joke.
