Indeed, a very useful library. 

Only caveat in this case: when using [^\000]+ in a regexp and calling
'reb-copy', it is converted to a literal NUL char address@hidden, which works
perfectly for regexp matching, but makes GIT think your .el file is a
binary file.

I had this problem and had to change all address@hidden back to [^\000]+ to
enable correct VC on these files again ... (including some renaming
workarounds).
