xpressive can do that with static regexes, but not dynamic ones (interpreted

However, you can view that as a "seeder" proposal to get things started if
you wish.

Aside: last year we mostly had "big" projects - write a new library from
scratch and so on - and as you may have noticed so far only one has come to
review. It's true that there are more in the works, but I notice that many
of the other projects had their students submitting patches to their
existing code base, with more of a series of targets, rather than "one big
hit" hoped for at the end. I'd be interested in hearing whether people
think a similar approach - for some of our projects anyway - would be
beneficial for Boost too.
