the changes are:
* added :quotewildcard and :quoteregex mofiefiers to SET.
Basic idea looks good, however, a couple of typos have crept in. First, the
syntax at the begining of 4.1 fails to list the two new modifiers. Second, the
plain text draft now says:
184.108.40.206. Modifier ":quotewildcard"
Every character with special meaning for :matches ("*", "?" and " is
prefixed with "
220.127.116.11. Modifier ":quoteregex"
Every character with special meaning for :regex (".", "*", "?" etc.)
is prefixed with "
I assume you meant '"\"' and not '"'. Looks like you need to apply some quoting
to the draft source...
The lack of a full list of regex specials is a bit awkward here, but I
guess I can live with it.
Finally, the section ends with "Using two or more modifiers of the same
precedence is a syntax error.". This isn't quite right: These aren't syntax
errors. How about saying "It is an error to use two or more modifiers of the
same precedence in a single SET operation" or something similar.
* added this paragraph to security considerations:
Since values stored by SET exceeding implementation limits are
silently truncated, it's not appropriate to store large
structures with security implications in variables.
I did not remove the text about interaction with regex yet. I feel the
text belongs in the variables draft, so if it is procedurally possible,
I prefer it stays there rather than move into the regex draft.
I also would like to keep the text here if possible.
