We can also update pharo version from original VW repositoriy if the
current license is appropriate. I think it covers missing parts.

Yes, Pharo regex implementation is very naive.
We will be moving to a PCRE binding to match outside world standards but we
have not had the time to work on it :(

matches. A regex engine to be PCRE is kind of essential, not having '.*?'
to be a parseable and working regex is a bummer. Are there any more
powerful regex engines around for Pharo? I could not find any.
