Well, AFAIK std.regexp only compiles to a bytecode that is then 
interpreted for every operation on it. (I have no idea what Perl does 
exactly, so it may be something similar, but I just thought I'd clear 
that up)

P.S. If you want to get formal, it's 'Mr. van Bommel', the 'van' is part 
of my surname.
