when i try to slim this:
var tagRegExp = new RegExp('<(\/*)(FooBar)', 'gi');
SyntaxError: Unexpected token (LT, '<') at 1:30 between LexToken(LPAREN,'(',1,28) and LexToken(LPAREN,'(',1,31)
This same error occurs across several different libraries i use. One of them being monernizr.
Definitely a bug. Thanks for filing it.
The bug is fixed. I've made a new 0.5.3 release and uploaded it to pypi: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/slimit
