Well that sounds like a pretty good argument in favor of pregexp --
I'll look in to it.  Of course we can only include it in guile-core
(without a rewrite) if the author's amenable to the LGPL and copyright
assignment.  If pregexp *is* suitable, I can probably handle improving
the performance.  I'll ask the author.

Should be.  Ideally, that might be encouraged via a suitable SRFI.
Wonder if pregexp might be appropriate...
