OK, I guess so, although at present there are no non-win32
Microsoft/Borland compilers are there? (I am aware that Kylix will be
comming soon though... )

As far as I am aware the only place where that occures is in cregex.hpp -
those are POSIX defined names for the most part REG_ICASE etc, the few
extentions then follow that naming system. I guess I could make these
macros rather than enum's but that seems to be a rather backward and
retentive step.

Oops that was a late addition... I'll get it fixed.

>boost/regex.hpp has lots of empty lines at the very end of the file.

and that.

Fresh to boost, not to my existing users, I guess I can provide it
separately on my web pages - but it is mentioned in the docs - and that's
not going to change, what does everyone else think?
