    rx: Improve 'or' compositionality (bug#37659) · 49d3cd90
    Mattias Engdegård authored
    Perform 'regexp-opt' on nested 'or' forms, and after expansion of
    user-defined and 'eval' forms.  Characters are now turned into strings
    for wider 'regexp-opt' scope.  This preserves the longest-match
    semantics for string in 'or' forms over composition.
