We have a regexp library written in SML that is part of the MLton
sources.  It's pretty complete, able to do most of POSIX 1003.2.  So,
one way to go would be to put a wrapper around that to make it look
like Regex.  Another possibility would be to use MLton's FFI to
implement Regex as in Moscow ML.

No luck yet, but I'm on it.  It will be fixed.
