+        Log: Revert the parts of #3926 that outlawed character ranges
+             that have character classes such as \w as either endpoint.
+             This change re-establishes the old behavior which meant that
+             such ranges weren't really ranges, the "-" was literal.
+             Moreover, this change also fixes the old behavior to be
+             more consistent: [\w-.] and [\s-\w] worked, but [.-\w] didn't.
+             Now they all do work as described above.  The #3926 outlawed
+             all of those.
