[bug-recutils] Mini-bug in recutils-1.5 man pages

in the recutils-1.5 man pages I found at the bottom the string "1.4.93". Is that intentional or a small bug?

And some further small comments from a "recutils"-newbie: I read the recsel man-page and the recsel info-page (ok, not completely) especially in order to find something about the usage of regular expressions. I found "Regular Expressions:: Flavor of regexps supported in recfiles" but where and how can I use them? The only usage hint was a pointer to the match "~" operator but unfortunately rarely examples.

Ok, something like

 recsel -e "Location ~ 'loane?'" books.rec

instead of

 recsel -e "Location = 'loaned'" books.rec

worked (important: the indentations of the example rec files must be removed!), but what about regular expressions in other context, for
e.g. like in

 recsel -q "loane?" books.rec

(that didn't work).

Ok, in the recsel man page I found in SYNOPSIS different argument types, for "-e" "RECORD_EXPR" and for "-q" "EXPR". But later in the man page itself for "-e" "EXPR" and for "-q" "STR", a little bit confusing at least for me as newbie.

I think some more examples would be helpful for non-experts to make the first usage of that promising tool a little bit easier.
