I think adding `not_ regex()` sounds better option to me just because in future if MIPS adds another architecture variation then `getMipsArchitectures()` would require an update.

`not_regex` will look like this:

def not_regex(pattern):
 return lambda x : not re.match(pattern, x)`

and python test file will use it as:


If Greg and Zachary also agrees then I will submit a patch for this.
