What I sent to the list a while back should do. If not, I will recreate
the patches but I can't promise they'll 100% follow Jim's standards.

I believe this is the case already.

How do I check this?  I am not sure this is a reasonable requirement,
since this patch purposely changes the behavior against glibc.

I will submit the diffs one more time but after that I give up.

As a separate question, there are some bugs in glibc regex that I
have fixed and would like to submit patches for. Can I send them to
you offline?
