Advanced Regexps?

Is there any way to do advanced regular expressions in Erlang? I've 
looked at the regexp and gregexp modules, but their implementations of 
regular expressions are very limited. I would really like to match word 
boundaries, etc. like you can in Perl et al.

I guess I could run a Perl script from Erlang, but I can't require that 
the user has Perl installed.

Any ideas?
