Thanks for confimation.

Well, I would say custom core_patterns without pipe support are still
better than none.

Say one would ensure a stable core_pattern (i.e. that it cannot be
modified as it is being parsed) and a restricted set of allowed
characters in the pattern (which would not include the pipe), validated
when one attempts to set the pattern.

Does this sound acceptable? If so, and there are no counter ideas from
Lei, I can get around to that.
