Hmmm... I wrote to the mailing list about them, answering to "shan chak
<shankholove at gmail.com>", though that's not identical to your account.

For the old parser, I think covering the example messages will be

Looking at the D/HTML examples, a simple indexing will not work.

Regex should be covered, of course... though that'll lead to even more
conflicts between PR #226 and PR #191-or-SF patch #11.

Disclaimer: I'm not a leading developer, and can't merge your changes.
What I can tell you, however, is that the current partial PR #226 is
not very likely to be considered.

As the author of SF patch #11, I plan to extend it for warnings, using
code from PR #226, except for the parsing. But I don't have time now.
