whoops, finished that email too soon.  What I was trying to say was that 
the above regex character class will not be functionally any different 


in theory, because the backslash doesn't really escape the dot (since 
dots aren't meta-characters in character classes) and the backslash 
can't represent a backslash without its own escape (it would need to 
be "\\" to do this).  I think.  I am not a regex guru, but that's my 
unrequested contribution to this thread.
