In most cases, yes.  But I did this card straight from the questions
I got in the last four weeks.  The questions were not only about
apt-get, but also about PostgreSQL and omniORB4.  Anyway, all table
row already have an id attribute, and I will add id attributes to
the tables, so that an trivial XSL transformation can be used to
extract customised reference cards, if that's needed.

Yes, regexp might be too complex for this little card, but shell
globbing (at least ? and *, maybe [], maybe {}) could find it's place.

Of course!  Many thanks in advance.
