If it is possible to achieve this behaviour with built-in engine, please
point me to the right direction.
Adding new code at this stage of the process is bad enough. Adding new code

about it. Quite apart from anything else it will almost certainly break many
Are we in beta or not? To me, beta means nothing but bug fixes go in,

definitely go for contrib as well. We need a bit of self-discipline around
the original intention was to have text search companion with code examples
for dictionaries and parser API and ability to keep them in workable

Of course, buildfarm checking is very important for this purpose and
I think we should remove dict_regex from ts_pack, but leave
README.dict_regex, so interested users could find it.
