What's the state of the art in detecting email address and phone numbers
in text? Unfortunately, the Regexp::Common docs say:

  Future releases of the module will also provide patterns for the

        * email addresses
        * HTML/XML tags
        * more numerical matchers,
        * mail headers (including multiline ones),
        * more URLS
        * telephone numbers of various countries

Email::Find looks nice. Is there something similar for phone numbers
