Comment (by pento):

 I don't have any good options at the moment.

 The best I have is to add a `grunt build` rule to update the regex based
 on the current regex in `twemoji.js`. That's pretty fragile, though -
 changes to `twemoji.js`'s formatting would break it. In theory, it would
 only break when updating `twemoji.js`, so maybe it wouldn't be too bad?

 This would also be a good time for precommit rules - if the `twemoji.js`
 regex is updated, but the corresponding PHP one isn't, die horribly.
