No, no - it's not a knee jerk reaction. In this case I see both points, 
and am torn on what I would prefer...

(Generally speaking, while having a "regex string literal syntax" in 
Groovy is great and I use it quite a bit, I always thought that using 
the slash delmiter for this was alas not a good choice, so if breaking 
changes are on the table, I would consider fading out slashy strings in 
favor of a different syntax. I am also high on Jochen's suggestion to 
streamline/unify the different string syntax varieties in Groovy...)
