Sounds reasonable.

I'm still not sure I am super-happy with /RE/ always being relative,
though I see Junio's problem space as something worth solving.  How does
it interact with -L:RE?  Do you now have to know in what order the
functions appear in the source to correctly specify -L:foo -L:bar or
similarly, -L/foo/,/^}/ -L/bar/,/^}/?  What if we supported +/RE/ as the
relative version?
