Default sed(1) support for Extended Regulare Expressions (ERE)

Only a few days ago I noticed this ERE support in snapshots, which has been in for more than 5 months already.

add -E flag to compile regular expressions using the extended POSIX
syntax. The -E flag is compatible with the other BSDs and OSX. -r is
also provided as an alias for compatibility with GNU sed.
From the man page:
     sed [-aEnru] command [file ...]
     sed [-aEnru] [-e command] [-f command_file] [file ...]
     -E      Interpret regular expressions using POSIX extended regular ex-
             pression syntax.  The default behaviour is to use POSIX basic
             regular expression syntax.
     -r      An alias for -E, for compatibility with GNU sed.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
