This would only work for trivial regexes, a complicated one would 
produce too many rules. I'd still want a pure regexp mode.

Anyways, your script is something we could supply with Jumbo almost 
as-is. A "rule generator script" is probably what many people need, 
including Nima. Just add a shebang line, license blurb, brief docs and 
wrap "while ($rule = <>)" around the lot and I think we're set.
