Indeed, tho it's not clear how we could do that.  One way that occurs to
me is: if we need to `load' or do some such dangerous operation in
re_compile_pattern, signal an error so we exit re_compile_pattern.
Then catch this error in the calling code where we can do the
corresponding operation safely and call re_compile_pattern again.
Kind of ugly, but for autoload-style operations it seems acceptable.
