Well, I used "flavor" in my previous message because Friedl uses that
term consistently in his book to refer to the various idiosyncracies
of different regex implementations.  It seems like a good term to me;
the differences among them don't rise to the level of being different
languages, yet they're distinctly different.

type, mode, option all seem, um, colourless ...
