The developer has to tell the ORO factory what regexp language he would 
like to use and therefore, if you got an instance, you know what 
language you have to use.
This is not nice - and maybe we have to deal with 2 (or more) languages, 
but it might not be worth the time to bring in a meta-regexp-language.
