I just didn't see a use for the power of regexps here. And I consider them
too ugly to be adding to configuration files. And I don't consider
flexible to be the ultimate best solution. One thing I am considering
though is adding support for exclusion, like do My::*, but not
My::Bar. I'll work something out maybe later.
