the historical statement has been that regex() should implement POSIX
EREs for UTF-8 data.

to be honest, i'm not sure if it's legitimate or sufficient to state
the requirement so simply.  i'll chase it up for the next spec
revision.

fwiw, Mantara's implementation does not quite fulfill that
requirement, which you might keep in mind if you see any differences
while testing.
