Hmm.. and it's documented:
    http://www.daemon.de/PCRE

One thing to take into account though:

PCRE   --> BSD licensed
PCRE++ --> LGPL

I certainly won't object to PCRE++ if developers feel more
comfortable with it, but if we use PCRE++ it will have to
be a dependency because we cannot bring it directly to the
tree. It wouldn't make much sense to design our own C++
wrapper.
