I'm probably about to expose embarrassing ignorance about how C++ really
works, but isn't it possible that our software could be vulnerable to
future behavior of the regex++ package which would break our code if
parts of a base class used by the package aren't accessible at runtime?
What I mean is this: even if we determine by careful inspection that
nothing in our code explicitly tries to use those inaccessible parts of
the base class, it's possible that macros in the regex++ headers might
make reference to those parts, causing some sort of runtime failure.
How far off base is this line of thought?
