The regexp doesn't care about the contents of arguments, it only  
cares about balanced parentheses.

I did run into weird problems where the regexp would fail to match if  
I processed an entire module at once. I had to split it up at known  
non-match points for it to pick up everything. Everything pointed to  
a bug in PCRE with recursive regular expressions.
