I don't understand why you would prefer this; is this because of the 
overhead of matching patterns on multiple lines?

You mean for 1.0.x?  Oh that's fine, I just meant it was dead in the
sense that I havent touched it in a long time.  really though, people
honestly havent been sending a whole lot of reports and requests.  Which
I guess in and of itself is a bit odd, since nano is now the default
editor on both debian and gentoo...  We could theoretically have a 
1.0.10 release but it doesn't seem likely right now.

If there's no expectation of the patch being applied then go ahead :>
