-Currently @pkgname{} understands five different forms of input, namely
-@code{read}, @code{string}, @code{rx}, @code{sregex} and @code{lisp-re}
-syntax.  Read syntax and string syntax are both delimited by @code{"}s
-and behave according to their name.  With the @code{string} syntax
-there's no need to escape the backslashes and double quotes simplifying
-the editing somewhat.  The other three allow editing of symbolic regular
-expressions supported by the packages of the same name.  (@code{lisp-re}
-is a package by me and its support may go away as it is nearly the same
-as the @code{sregex} package in Emacs)

 Note that the @code{sregex,} @code{rx} and @code{lisp-re} syntaxes will
 only be available in XEmacs if you've installed them yourself.
