No. Regex, when built with Unicode support, requires ICU for that. Boost
doesn't have its own Unicode stuff. (There's something in the vault,

Actually, it is whatever the compiler decides it should be. On Linux
systems with a default GCC, yes, that's UTF-32, but under Windows it's
typically UCS-2 or UTF-16 (with or without surrogate support, that is).

I'm working on one. But I don't know how well it will be received. I
hope I can show a preliminary version soon.
