Larry Wall is redesigning regular expressions, in his latest "Apocalypse 5".
http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2002/06/04/apo5.html

Will Ruby be taking a similar change? I'm no expert at regexes, but
if it can make then easier to read/write, sounds like a good idea.

But is it worth breaking quite a bit of previously written code?
Ruby may have a big advantage in that it's code base is quite a bit
smaller.
