I'm sorry, I read your original suggestion as being the same as Eric's: reuse the match_results. Unfortunately, the semantic actions reference local variables, so I don't think I can make the sregex's static (please correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't see how multiple parallel invocations of the function could reference separate stack variables from static sregex's). I did make the sregex's const; that appears to have improved performance a bit.
