Sorry, my hint was simply to state that a variable named
$ROSPatterns will be able to use regexps. It's not that this
solves the problem you're wanting to solve (it doesn't).

converting WikiWords into [[WikiWords]]. On pmwiki.org I've just
been converting them manually as I find them, and encouraging
others to do the same.
