To get an idea of how difficult or easy it might be to use it with
AntiSpam, I looked at the RegEx module just now.

It's probably a very useful piece of software, but I wouldn't be able to
tell because there's no real documentation with it. Apparently one is
assumed to have a good knowledge of regular expressions (which I don't).
There's a mention of a StrongHelp SWI manual in the ChangeLog, but it
isn't included and it's not on Christian Ludlam's site either.

At present I just don't have the time to go hunting for the necessary
information (or digest it when found). Sorry. Maybe later.
