AFAIK, this code used to be in some version of glibc, but glibc has
moved to a completely different regexp implementation many years ago.
IIRC gnulib was the last non-Emacs package which shared this code, and
AFAIK gnulib also dropped this (not sure if it replaced it with
something else or what, tho).

So, my understanding is that this code is now 100% ours with no hope to
sync it with anyone else.
