Then again, I guess those writing Windows clients won't love that (or
does Windows have regex parsing these days?), so I guess I'll have to
do it as I do it today, ie. let my client filter on that.

If you mean regex libraries for Windows, they're available - look at the
gnuwin32 project page <http://gnuwin32.sf.net/>. If you mean "does an
ordinary Windows user know what's regex", the answer is most likely no.
Still, there are a few Windows programs which support regex, mostly e-mail
clients and newsreaders.

The probability of having someone close the safe and spin the dial while you
have the back of the lock off will vary directly with the square of the
number of people you tell not to touch the safe while you get something out
of the truck.
