Surprising problem of the day: We set up our test bot to run with - 
Mdiagnostics, and performance went in the toilet, and some of our  
tests that make sure indexing happens within a reasonable amount of  
time actually failed.

Why?  because uses $& and $', which makes all our  
regex-based code go sloooow, especially KinoSearch.

Anyone feel like modifying to remove those?  It seems  
like the Right Thing To Do.  Otherwise, I will and submit a patch  
tomorrow or next week.
