Yeah, only this might travel through the CLI a lot and a backslash 
isn't much fun quouting through scripts.

The other thing I thought about was a space character, as it is
neither legal in hostnames nor urls, but if people stick entire
HTTP lines into the hash, then it's a bad idea, and it requires
the regex to be quoted in the cli
