I'd suggest that POSIX compliant regex routines should be the default,
but that the V8 ones should be supplied in some manner.

I'm not too keen on Henry's regex routines though, since IMO they're
lacking in several respects.  I've not the time or energy just now to
exlain my opinion just now, but with sufficient encouragement I could
try soon....  Also, I'd really like to have a look at Henry's latest
code, and compare it to the other "versions" available, and the
specifications, before I commit myself any further.
