Would not it be a little gentler to the developers to keep
\bool_if... lazy and introduce a new family \bool_greedy...?

Good luck


Because . doesn't match \n.  [\0-\377] is the most efficient way to match
everything currently.  Maybe \e should match everything.  And \E would
of course match nothing.   :-)
