      Christian, many thanks for the work you have done, and for putting users
      first. It is heartily appreciated.

      The consolation may be small, but vim is now consistent with awk:

      . This matches any single character, including the newline character.

      O'Reilly's "Mastering Regular Expressions" has it as varying between

      Regards,
      Erik
