Sometimes the output from one run to the next differs
in inconsequential ways. Sometimes the output contains
more detail than needs to be shown, and would make the
text script less readable as documentation. For both
these purposes, Updoc should understand alternate
keywords for the original answers, to signal that the
text of the original answer is not literal text, but
rather is a pattern to be matched against the
corresponding new answer. For example, in "Iterating by
Key-Value Pairs", the test case which defines the
variable "capitals" shows an answer with keyword
"match:". This should match against an actual "value:"
answer by treating the "..." in the match-answer as a
wildcard.
