        Hmmm. I see.

        I can't: Felix type bindings:

        type regex = "regex";

require the string on the RHS to be a single word.
So I can't use 'boost::regex' directly. I am now using

        typedef boost::regex regex;

But the real problem was that I was calling regex_match
with the arguments in the wrong order! I was surprised that
I didn't get a list of candidates (gcc normally gives a
list of candidates when it finds a name, but can't
do a match). This may have something to do with Koenig lookup

Anyhow, thanks.
