The text now claims that [:alnum:], [:alpha:], [:blank:] ... [:space:] ...
are self-explanatory names. While I've managed to work out the difference
between :blank: and :space: by looking at the source code (:blank: matches
[ \t], while :space: matches [ \f\n\r\t\v] and possibly other characters
depending upon the locale), I have trouble accepting that this difference
is obvious from the names.
Could you add some text explaining this difference?
