[vile] issue with regular expressions

I noticed (have forgotten if this was mentioned before) that OR'd expressions such as


will only match "th". That's been that way "forever", though when investigating, I thought it was my bug. I've changed it in my current patch to a greedy match, so any of the alternatives above will work.
Is there any reason to keep the first-match-only behavior?
