Any status on this? There was some discussion of a few of the patches,
but there don't seem to be any major objections to most of them.

> Following is a series of patches whose intent is to make the regex
> routines easier to use outside of GLIBC. They are culled from the
> version of regex in gawk. I have been carrying many of them forward
> for many years.
> The last time I tried to submit my changes they were rejected since I
> sent them as one batch; I was told to break them out into individual
> one-item patches. I have finally done so.
> I have signed paperwork for GLIBC with the FSF, so that's not an issue.
> I've done my best to follow the contribution guidelines. If not everything
> is perfect, please meet me half way. I don't have a lot of time to polish
> these patches to perfection. As it is, this took me several hours to do
> and get right.
> It would be a big help to me, as the gawk maintainer, to see as many
> of these patches as possible added to GLIBC.
> Please cc me on any responses, I am not on the libc-alpha mailing list.
> Much thanks!
