I'm not the proper address for this request.

I personally find these functions useful, just the regex(3) API (or
strings in general) is not something people like to do in C.

I see no problem with a one-use-case function in libc, as long as it is
well defined and generic enough. I would definitely use these functions
when I will be doing sed(1)-like operations in C.

There are no problems with reentrancy or threading in these functions so
I see no flaws.
