    *anyof_class* Changed
        If an *anyof_class* element is a Unicode property or a Perl class
        (like "\w" or "\S"), the object's "data" field points to the
        underlying object type (*prop*, *alnum*, etc.). If the element is a
        POSIX class, the "data" field is the string "POSIX". POSIX classes
        don't exist in a regex outside of a character class, so I'm a little
        wary of making them objects in their own right, even if it would
        create a better sense of uniformity.

    Documentation
        Fixed some poor wording, and documented the problem with using
        SUPER:: inside MyClass::__object__.

    Bug Fixes
        Character classes weren't closing properly in the tree. Fixed.

        Standard escapes ("\a", "\e", etc.) were being returned as *exact*
        nodes instead of *anyof_char* nodes when inside character classes.
        Fixed. (Mike Lambert)

        Non-grouping parentheses weren't being parsed properly. Fixed. (Mike
        Lambert)

        Flags weren't being turned off. Fixed.

    Better Abstracting
        The object() method calls force_object(). force_object() creates an
        object no matter what pass the parser is making; object() will
        return immediately if it's just the first pass. This means that
        force_object() should be used to create stand-alone objects.

        Each object now has an insert() method that defines how it gets
        placed into the regex tree. Most objects inherit theirs from the
        base object class.

        The walker() method is also now abstracted -- each node it comes
        across will have its walk() method called. And the ending node for
        stack-type nodes has been abstracted to the ender() method of the
        node.

        The init() method has been moved to another file to help keep *this*
        file as abstract as possible. Regexp::Parser installs its handlers
        in Regexp/Parser/Handlers.pm. That file might end up being where
        documentation on writing handlers goes.

        The documentation on sub-classing includes an ordered list of what
        packages a method is looked up in for a given object of type 'OBJ':
        YourMod::OBJ, YourMod::__object__, Regexp::Parser::OBJ,
        Regexp::Parser::__object__.

    Cleaner Grammar Flow
        Now the only places 'atom' gets pushed to the queue are after an
        opening parenthesis or after 'atom' matches. This makes things flow
        more cleanly.

    Flag Handlers
        Flag handlers now receive an additional argument that says whether
        they're being turned on or off. Also, if the flag handler returns 0,
        that flag is removed from the resulting object's visual flag set.
        That means "(?gi-o)" becomes "(?i)".

    Diagnostics and Bug Fixes
        More tests added (specifically, making sure "(?(N)T|F)" works
        right). In doing so, found that the "too many branches" error wasn't
        being raised until the second pass. Figured out how to improve the
        grammar to get it to work properly. Also added tests for the new
        captures() method.

        I changed the field 'class' to 'family' in objects. I was getting
        confused by it, so I figured it was a sign that I'd chosen an awful
        name for the field. There will still be a class() method in
        __object__, but it will throw a "use of class() is deprecated"
        warning.

        Quantifiers of the form "{n}" were being misrepresented as "{n,}".
        It's been corrected. (Mike Lambert)

        "\b" was being turned into "b" inside a character class, instead of
        a backspace. (Mike Lambert)

        Fixed errant "Quantifier unexpected" warning raised by a zero-width
        assertion followed by "?", which doesn't warrant the warning.

        Added "Unrecognized escape" warnings to *all* escape sequence
        handlers.

        The 'g', 'c', and 'o' flags now evoke "Useless ..." warnings when
        used in flag and non-capturing group constructs.
