preg_match() vs. ereg(): preg_* functions are supposed to be siginficantly 
faster than their ereg_* "equivalents", so preg_match() should be the 
winner here.

preg_split() vs. explode(): these aren't "equivalent" functions.  The 
former splits on a regular expression; the latter splits on a string value.
