Discussing in the Ada channel another guy and I came to the conclusion that any language made from this point onward should have a) *NO* regexps, and b) PEGs instead to replace them. Whether in the language proper (Awk, Perl, etc.) or in the standard library.

Regexps are awful and need to die in a fire after being boiled in concentrated acid.
