Another valid point is that people try and tackle regular expressions when they're not fully learned in the subject. I admit, I used to be one of those and I do surmise my older applications are susceptible to regular expression issues.
The very fact that the Filter Vars is an established PHP library would make it beneficial to use above anything else because it will have been thoroughly tested against many various tricks that users may well decide to try.
