One other point - I use some of those declarations internally (the error
codes), so they have to be somewhere accessable by all the regex code.
I've been trying to think of a precedent in the standard, and the only one
I can find is the LC_XXX constants - these are required to be macros by
both the C and C++ standards, so I guess maybe macros are the way to go -
it just seems backward somehow, on the other hand "std::LC_ALL" looks a
little wrong as does "boost::REG_ICASE", so maybe they should be
