    To decide whether stripping (regex - an indexed text) is fruitful, even within words, only in the middle:
        if even within words:
            if replacing regex with "" is fruitful, even within words:
                decide yes;
        if only in the middle:
            if replacing regex with "" is fruitful, only in the middle:
                decide yes;
        otherwise:
            if replacing regex with "" is fruitful, decide yes;
        decide no.

    To decide whether replacing (regex - an indexed text) with (newstr - an indexed text) is fruitful, even within words, only in the middle:
        let original be the reborn command;
        if even within words:
            replace the regular expression "[regex]" in reborn command with "[newstr]";
        otherwise if only in the middle:
            replace the regular expression "(?=(^\s)+)\b[regex]\b(?=(^\s)+)" in reborn command with "[newstr]";
        otherwise:
            replace the regular expression "\b[regex]\b" in reborn command with "[newstr]";
        if original is not reborn command:
            decide yes;
        now reborn command is original;
        decide no.

    To decide whether input starts with (regex - an indexed text), even within words:
        if even within words:
            if reborn command exactly matches the regular expression "^[regex].*":
                decide yes;
        otherwise:
            if reborn command exactly matches the regular expression "^[regex]\b.*":
                decide yes;
        decide no.

    To decide whether input ends with (regex - an indexed text), even within words:
        if even within words:
            if reborn command exactly matches the regular expression ".*[regex]$":
                decide yes;
        otherwise:
            if reborn command exactly matches the regular expression ".*\b[regex]$":
                decide yes;
        decide no.

    To decide whether input contains (regex - an indexed text), even within words:
        if even within words:
            if reborn command matches the regular expression "[regex]":
                decide yes;
        otherwise:
            if reborn command matches the regular expression "\b[regex]\b":
                decide yes;
        decide no.
