      Sometimes the meaning is clearer.

      What if you're searching for a sequence of certain characters including newlines, where the first character is NOT a newline?

      I'd probably want to use:

      /[^\n]\&[a-f0-9\n]\+

      which is equivalent to, but clearer in meaning than:

      /.\&[a-f0-9\n]\+
