Subject: Argument order in new match functions


I just realized that the order of arguments for some new 3.0 functions 
which we have defined makes them useless in a target.

The functions are:


The typical use of for instance a string-starts-with would be to specify 
a prefix in a target which would be matched against a full value from 
the request. Currently these functions take their arguments in the 
reverse order, making them not very useful in a target. (The constant 
value from a Match becomes the first argument of the matching function, 
while we have specified the functions to accept the "shorter" string as 
the second argument.)

I propose that we change the order of these function arguments.

Best regards,
