We've talked about http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/lib/libc/regex/
as well.  Is there any reason to prefer one over the other?

I'm testing an integration of the OpenBSD code right now.  I can't test a
Windows build, though.  So how should we go about doing that?  I have the
autoconf and (I think) cmake work done, but I have no way of fully testing
it.  Should I just check it in and let Windows users give it a try?
