It's a "hack-o-the-week" paper that I wrote back when on a specific RL parse
of regular expressions, but anyway:

        "Right Left Regular Expression Parsing"

Essentially, I found it more graceful to parse regular expressions backwards
than I did to parse them LR, for reasons specific to RE-to-LPM translation.
