I'm very much interested in this change; I thought we were going for -


looks for (in order)


and change the check from a straight if to an exists check, which will sort
the CDBI issue, then do a regex search if it falls off that search order.

Plus MyApp->comp(qr/.../) is an explicit regex search.
