using a slightly different strategy. Nevertheless, thank you for your
response, Morus, which was much kinder than Daniel Veillard's.
You suggested to extend the behaviour of an XPath function for
doing a non-conformant behaviour, at least that's what I understood
from your mail. You didn't say "I don't understand ..." you said
"This doesn't do what I expect... can I change it ?" and then suggesting
to support regexp and later on \\ escaped character.
My answer was that I didn't agree with this and that such support
could only be done as extension functions.
Now you can say I'm not kind, it's right I'm not kind to non-compliant
behaviour in general, sorry, I'm unlikely to change on this point.
