Subject Re: Wrapping the regex functions for 2.0

| Standardize. If HSREGEX works, then why not use it?


| I would tend to agree. We went through this several years back,

| debate) that it was better to use the native library if there was
| one. Although for the life of me, I can't remember why.

  If the native library is shared, there may be a small win there.   
I don't think that outweighs the advantage of having consistant  
behavior accross platforms.
