Ok. How would a pattern look like which only sends mail when there are
exactly three >5% points are in the history? *x* matches everything,
how do I match an arbitrary long stretch of zeroes?

Additionally the manpage text ">10%,*10*,>10% will fire if more than
10% of the packets have been losst twice over the last 10 samples." is
wrong. It will fire if more than 10% of the packets have been lost
_at_ _least_ twice over the last 10 samples.
