The easiest would be if the guys from Apache 2 move the regex to the
apr-util (I already make the question about that on the apr-dev).
Apache 2 builds should be relatively easy to implement since we have the
pcrelib already there. For the rest of the servers (IIS) we have the
.dsp and all that is needed is to include that in the module build.

Well everything is precompiled, so the performance shouldn't be an issue

I was planning to do that any way since this has lot of implications to
the existing mappings, moving the new code to the jk_uriMapX.c and
keeping function naming as is.

Ok. That would be fine with me.
