I'm not sure my memory isn't failing me, but there could be issues
with non-ASCII characters support in regexps, since Emacs has its own
internal representation of non-ASCII, perhaps different from the
system library's.

But I agree it's generally a good idea to allow for a system regex to
be used, especially if I'm wrong and the issue I mentioned doesn't
really exist.
