Yes.  And (I can say this since it's myself I'm putting down) to some 
extent, choosing to use the sed "substitute, for dri.conf, drirc, 
globally" (literal left-to-right translation of the clauses), instead of 
the plain English, "Oops, make that drirc instead of dri.conf", is a way 
of saying "Yes, I made this mistake, but I'm not /really/ as foolish as 
it makes me look, because see, I can use '133+ regex'!" =:^P

Of course, "s/dri\.conf/drirc/g" is also much shorter and cooler looking 
than a whole plain English sentence to the same effect, so it's not 
/entirely/ the above, there's a practical aspect to the conciseness as 
well (something regulars I'm sure will agree I can usually use more of, 
but that's the problem, when I try, it ends up /too/ much so and there's 
inevitably a subthread having to explain it!), so it's really a bit of
