HTCondor uses Perl-Compatible Regular Expressions - the PCRE library - so
you have all the options you'd have in a Perl script, including |, +,
character ranges, and everything else.

Having started with regexps on UNIX System III, I still sometimes wind up
with over-complicated expressions that don't use all the newfangled regexp
doohickeys. :-)

Any length limitation would be imposed by PCRE, and as I recall it's too
large to make a difference in nearly all use cases.
