`pcrecallout' could help to translate \c and \s to PCRE.

    PCRE provides a feature called "callout", which is a means of
    temporarily passing control to the caller of PCRE in the middle of
    pattern matching. The caller of PCRE provides an external function
    by putting its entry point in the global variable pcre_callout. By
    default, this variable contains NULL, which disables all calling out.

    Within a regular expression, (?C) indicates the points at which the
    external function is to be called. Different callout points can be
    identified by putting a number less than 256 after the letter C.
    For example, this pattern has two callout points:
