Block entries coming from MoinMaster and Chongqed are all
regular expressions, and the blocklist.php file knows that because
it sets 'format'=>'regex' for those download types.  Thus an
entry in one of these blocklists that looks like \.uni\.ch
is the same as if one had specified in Site.Blocklist:

    block: /\.uni\.ch/

Thus, to unblock this, one has to use "unblock: /\.uni\.ch/".

For PmWiki-formatted blocklists, it's the presence or absence
of a leading slash that determines the type of blocking:

    block: word or phrase
    block: /regex/
