The config with two regex locations nested did that. But if you're
asking for a *catch all* regex that blocks every other extension
besides css, js, &c, then you're thinking in terms of the
complement of the set of allowed extensions.

It's easier to enunciate the negative than the positivem due to the
fact that you're "searching" a wide space.
