Me too.  I vaguely recall it was because RMS wanted to export Emacs
regex.c to be used by other applcliations.  I don't know of any
applications that do it, though: all the ones I know of use
lib/regex.c.  (Or they slurp regex.c from glibc directly -- it's quite
different now.)

I searched for "emacs AND regex" and for "Jeff Bailey" and didn't find

How about if you wait a couple of days for Jeff to respond, and
if he doesn't, then start syncing gnulib regex from Emacs?
