I didn't get a clear feeling about what people wanted wrt this.  I saw

this a big deal?  Will it really get used by everyone who currently

regex to minimize future problems?

The two contenders seem to be a modified GNU regex and the
ever-popular Henry Spencer's regex.  Does anyone have any strong
opinions for either of these, or against any regex in libiberty at
