Sounds good to me. So we have two +1 votes on incorporating Henry
Spencer's POSIX-compatible regex package into Apache (Ben's and mine).
Anyone have a third, or a -1? If someone else +1s it, I'll take the
requisite parts and commit them. Then we can fix the warning, which, near
as I can tell, comes about because the Solaris cc is too stupid to realize
that an unsigned long is supposed to be an unsigned long. But I haven't
figured out exactly how to fix it yet (it's no doubt easy).
