Re: [perl #126150] Regex missing from perlref

I have clarified L<perlfunc/ref> in commit
f3c710fe342032112ac92fc893f5ef050b4f7024, as a result of the tangential
discussion here.  However, the request on this ticket is mistaken.
"Regexp" is returned from "ref" for the perfectly regular reason that
it is a class name.  L<perlref> has no business listing every class into
which an object might be blessed.  This ticket should be closed.
