 Severity:  normal          |    Keywords:  wxr importer preg
 The WordPress importer uses preg_match_all to slurp items from the import
 file.  Large items can cause a PREG_BACKTRACK_LIMIT_ERROR.  This can be
 avoided by bumping pcre.backtrack_limit, but that isn't very friendly.
 Instead, the importer shouldn't use preg_match_all.  There are other ways
 of retrieving the items.
