i'm aware of those libs, but if there will be an internet wide 9libs
distro containing those, it is best to coordinate with russ. i don't mind
using the libs (as i indicated in the past) if for no other reason than
using more robust, current versions, except the regexp library. wily/sam
regexp library is a special rob pike version with a neat enhancement to
do reverse matches; so far as i can tell no other regexp library in
general use has this smart extension.
