If possible, I'd like not to conflate current issue with switches
deprecation, which needs to be discussed separately.

What do you mean by "it is impossible for the user to specify their own
coderef regexp that can be used in both cases"? In particular, what is
a coderef regexp in this context? I know about coderef format, but
I don't think users are supposed to provide a regexp here.
