Is there a regexp for 5 time points?
The regexp tests well against 6 time points cron expression, but not 5 (5 time points occur when second is optional.).
Example:
reg.test("10 12 * * 1,2,3,4,5"); // false
reg.test("* 10 12 * * 1,2,3,4,5"); // true

reg.test("* */5 * * * *"); return false, please fix it
