Ah, crap.  Sorry for misreading that.

   i)  This is free software.  Go right ahead.  :-)  Some of the
       neatest stuff came into being because someone felt an itch they
       couldn't scratch.  It's probably a very difficult problem to
       solve, though.

  ii)  Unix-ish OSs have a steep learning curve.  The curve pays off
       with extraordinary power.

Regular expressions aren't difficult to master.  The biggest problem
I've found with them is subsets of them.  Shell RE's, perl RE's, awk,
...  Some work in all of them, some work in only one of them, some
work differently in each.  It can be confusing, but it's really not
that hard.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
