Recursive-Regex Update

I think I have enough of the bugs worked out and enough tests now to actually recommend that others use the recursive-regex library up at my github.

There is a brief overview of the project in the introductory blog post. Also, in response to one of the comments on that blog post, there is an example s-exp parser as part of the test suite.

While this started as a toy, to scratch an intellectual itch, I think that this project is potentially a nice mid point between full blown parser frame work and regular expressions. Grammars are hard to get right though, so if you are writing your own language you might want to investigate something from the cliki parser generators page (eg: cl-yacc).
