Thanks Rick,
I was send you another note when this came it. I had already looked
at it before sending the last message. The documentation and code trail
looks good. I fear side effect in mis-matched targets, or
in REGEX lingo "binding to an unqualifier"

I need a test bed. Is there a sh script that wraps this?
Or an command line invocation you could share?
Lastly, I need a data set.
