Yes, something like that.

The problem I face is I've forked every parser script I use, and it's
always to add or remove entire commands or individual regexes. These
things work best when the regex definition is treated as data out of a
config, not as pure code

I still haven't fully read the 3.0 code yet, so I could well be asking
for something you've already done
