Why do you want to tie one hand behind your back like that? Scheme is such a beautiful language that we should have a good, optimised, tight core and then as much as possible of the remaining system written in Scheme, possibly compiled down, maybe through C, for speed of loading when necessary. Some things have to interface with the outside world and may need to have C layers for that reason, but regular expressions aren't one of them.

This are my random ramblings. But you asked for input ;-)

Indeed. IANA Regex Library Implementor... but then, with pregexp, why would I unless I have to? ;-)
