    I've been writing some C code, and found a reference to the standard lib implementation of regular expression in a thread here. I did a "man regex", and after reading it, (especially the last few paragraphs), I ask myself, with all the known bugs and sucky performance "gotchyas", and the fact that it's been in Alpha since 2004, why would I even consider using it?
