What are folks' thoughts on this subject - ie, linking to a book from an intro to Regular
Expressions? It's unquestionably the best resource on the topic, and it's not in any way self-serving
- Jeffrey isn't in any way involved with our project and I don't think I've ever even met
him.

Any dissenting voices think we need to remove this link? The topic of external links has come
up now and then over the years, but I don't know that we've ever set a firm stance on it.
