hmm. But for some reason it didn't like your syntax. I did change to
the old style after $1 didn't work and it did work, but I realized
that my browser forced lowercase and I need to be able to work some
magic. So after all of this work I'm winding up pushing it all to a
PHP wrapper so I can do some URL altering...

thanks. I -did- get it to work using the old regex syntax and named
captures, but wound up having to change it all anyway :)
