Though I should point out that this wouldn't help with -=, since it's
autogenerated either way, unless you divide the token into literal
and wildcard like foo\w*, in which case literal - and meta = wins over
meta - and literal =, since wildcardness currently treats the remainder
of the token as wild even if there are additional literal components.
