This is the kind of sorcery I am scared but so fascinated about Emacs :D
There is a lot to unpack for me here that this will be a great tutorial
on itself.

Also thanks @Jack for the alternate solution with a straight regexp! Now
I have both very good examples of how I can retry to solve this in two
different ways.

These examples are for me worth their weight in gold, thank you so much!
