Description:
------------
Maybe the existing preg_match could allow for an array to be given as $pattern. Or if not a preg_match_array() might be an alternative.

Idea is to check a string against a list of pattern. First matched pattern would return.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
  $patterns = array(
    '/\.link1$/',
    '/\.link2$/',
    '/\.link3$/',
    '/\.link4$/',
  );

  $subject = "field.link2";

  if(preg_match($patterns, $subject)) {
    // ...
  }


Expected result:
----------------
preg_match should find the first pattern that matches (if any).

Actual result:
--------------
No array-support for $pattern yet.
