I had made a thin wrapper experiment with here - looks like the version
he's shipped is relatively complete and compatible with the re module

I'll be interested in seeing how well it performs - The wrapper I had
been experimenting with ended up far slower than the re module for
simple expressions - and the fastest codepaths in RE2 seem to be ones
that are incompatible with the API we're used to using in the re module.
