Hi Niels,

please always answer to the mailing list (no problem if you CC me, but
not needed).

It was just an example for POSIX regexes - it's up to you to work out
the details ;-) Or maybe there is a volunteer reading this.

The implicitly downloaded HTML pages should be removed after parsing
when you use --accept-regex. Except the explicitly 'starting' page from
your command line.

Regards, Tim
