I had to increase a hardcoded list length in the source code
to fit all my teleshop-keywords on a single line. :)
By default, the plugin accepts a list of 10 HasName directives
at once. Bleh.

I would vote for regexp support _and_ included files.
The parser should also support continued lines with "\",
for example. Like this:


Either Perl regexp or at least egrep syntax should be sufficient.
It would be a good idea to include a regexp library with the plugin
just to make the regexp behavior uniform on all different platforms.
The regexp libraries provided by the operating system tend to differ.
