Because it's quite normal for functions like str_replace to be *much*
faster than preg_replace, but since str_replace on arrays is slower
(due to iterating over them using PHP code) you have to use preg_replace.
I'll happily use preg_replace whenever I need to do some Regular
Expression replacement, but when I want to do normal text replacement
I expect str_replace to give me the same flexibility as preg_replace.
