Hey Kai,

dirty perl way of doing it. Here goes:

Does it have to be a one-liner? Does it have to be a general regex, or can 
it be expressed in Perl? I think I have something like this sitting around 
somewhere, but it may be two or even three lines. (If that's okay.)

(I sometimes like to keep things multi-line, just for readability. And also 
to combat Perl's reputation as a write-only language.)

Anyway, I can work on finding it while you answer and let me know if it 
would even work for you.
