Thanks much.

Is there any plan, now or later, to match up all the regex options
in various pkg_* commands?  pkg_info (on 5.4) currently has -[xX]
for regex; above will introduce -[ExG], where -x option seem to be
doing the same thing both in pkg_info & pkg_create.  I notice that
pkg_create uses -X for exclusion.  Hmm...
