This is a simple mod that replaces simple strict-equivalence comparison on verification questions with a regexp test. At its simplest, this mod allows for multiple answers to verification questions.

In any typical case, this extension will not break existing verification answers; only those with special characters will be affected.

So, if you had the question, "One plus one equals...", and the answer "two", the answer will still work. But you can improve it by replacing it with "(tw?o?o|2)", which will lead to the acceptance of any of "to", "two", "too", "twoo", or "2". More simply, less elegantly, a less experienced user could enumerate them, "(two|too|to|2)".

My forum asks, "Name a yellow fruit." This is the answer:
(yellow )?(ba(nn|n)a(nn|n)a|lemon|(pine|pine |)apple|(pear|pare|pair))s?

Overkill? Probably. Useful? Yes.
