It seems to me that supporting multiple comparison modes like "strcmp", "strcasecmp",
"fnmatch", "regex" etc through an optional argument would add more complexity than will
be used even in rather weird setups. What about two modes: simple |-separated sequence,
with hardcoded comparison functions, as it is now, and single "regex" per statement,
which covers all special cases?
