Eeek. I think perlre will do fine, maybe even try to use the python
style interfaces, but of course without the "in Python most things are
objects unless they are not" OO ness.

I guess the other point is that it needs to be fast.

I am working on trying to get it included (very slowly). Space on the CDs
is precious and so I have to both package it and then find room for it,
which may mean dropping something else and does mean getting some others
to agree.

Still, we have Haskell, so why not?
