Just discovered that the King of regex/Livecode, Thierry Doux, provided an
update to the PCRE library used by LC in version 6.5.0 which included many
new features including more Unicode options than I outlined earlier.

It updated the PCRE library from 6.7 to 8.3 which sounds like a huge
upgrade and includes many features not previously available.
