Modifier ":quoteregex"

        Every character with special meaning for :regex (".", "*", "?"

        only available when the "regex" extension is in effect.

Do we want to more specifically say something like "Ensures that "
[ ...every character with special meaning is prefixed with "\" ... ],
i.e. if a character is already quoted, we don't want another quote
character to be added (otherwise the quoted character would become
unquoted, a literal quote character would be added, etc).

Ditto for :quotewildcard

BTW, I also prefer ":quotematches" to ":quotewildcard" so that the
keyword is more reflective of the match-type name.
