Pattern helper functions

We have just created a new addon to the core T-Regx library: pattern-helpers. It's a set of global PHP functions, complementary to the T-Regx library.

Some users prefer a more direct approach to regular expressions, and object oriented approach with Pattern and Matcher can become too verbose at times.

The added package pattern-helpers includes functions such as: pattern_match_all(), pattern_replace(), pattern_replace_callback(), pattern_split(). These functions are much closer to the T-Regx philosophy and are supposed to supersede the preg:: functions from SafeRegex/ package. We'll be deprecating preg:: functions in the future releases, and it won't be part of T-Regx in 1.0.
