Is there more info on the proposal to add a pattern data type to Unicon? What were the problems that stopped it? From the website it looks as if this project is ongoing, but clearly it isn't.

    The Pattern data type is implemented and in CVS, but not enabled by
    default and not considered an accepted part of the Unicon language.
    Where it is stalled as of 6/2008 is that it is considered unfinished
    because does not integrate very well with the string scanning mechanism.
    Some specific suggestions were made that its author declined to pursue.
    We hope to finish it, but do not know how soon that will happen.
