For a small project[1] I was working on today I've been cursing the  
POSIX regular expressions endlessly, so I'd welcome this patch in a  
future version of Varnish.

- I'm testing if users can reach sites with only AAAA or AAAA+A  
records. I have varnish generate a bit of Javascript with the user IP  
address so the backend application only needs to get hit when the  
Javascript has collected all the data.
