Thanks for looking at it.

will look at how to improve the patch, however what you suggest is
not enough in this case:
there are [at least] two instances of the match
pattern, one of which i want to replace, the other i do not.
(also consider that the source is basically dead - nobody
is going to change it so there is little point in being
flexible on the input).
