The ideal goal of rx is to make that the way most people write regexps
for Emacs.  That would be an improvement because rx syntax is more
understandable.  If this happens, we will need to have rx syntax in the
Emacs Lisp Manual.

In the past, various practical factors have made rx somewhat inconvenient,
and that prevented rx from competing with the regexp syntax.
Recently we have made some improvements in rx; are they enough to
make rx a real competitor for regexps?
