This doesn't look like a good idea because it's not thread-safe.
Is the rest of regex thread safe?
I've no objection to something else that does the trick for GLIBC.
Gawk doesn't have multiple threads.
It does not matter for glibc because it's compiled with GCC. It might
matter if this code is merged into gnulib, which is supposed to be
portable to many compilers and environments.
