      Hello, all!

      I would like to count things. I know that if I want to know how many of
      something there are, I can hack it with

      :%s/\(my favorite regex\)/\1/g

      the result:
      65 substitutions on 23 lines

      However, when things are more complex, ie part of a script, how can I do
      this cleanly, for example:

      count the number of occurrences of regex x
      put the count into a register
      add to it the number of occurrences of regex y?
