I have a patch lying around that someone made a while ago to use regular
expressions.  I didn't particular care for it so I haven't integrated it.
In particular I hoped it would solve the multiple extension for a single
syntax.  Unfotunately the regular expression to do the equivelent of the
all various C++ extensions is messy.  Might be reasonable to combine the
current multiple extensions and regular expressions.
