I would not say so. Xpressive's static regexes are "odd". It's hard
enough to master regular expression -- mastering a new, C++-specific DSL
for regexes is just brain damage. And its dynamic regexes are (based
solely on comparing the documentation and my use of Regex) not as
featureful as those in Regex.
