Invalid regex inside exclusion pattern crashes Spices.Net

When exclusion pattern is invalid, Spices tries to re-parse it each time it processes a field or method od the assembly. When the project is quite big, this completely hangs the Spices.
It's necessary to pre-compile regex before proceeding obfuscation; anyway, regex must be validated immediately when user enters it.

Thanks for suggestion, we'll implement pre-validation of regex expressions in  patterns ot the nearest update.
