The current regular expression functions allow you to pass in flags to alter
the regular expression processing. One of these flags implemented in Saxon is
the exclamation mark to indicate that the regular expression be treated as a
Java regular expression rather than one conforming to the current
specification.

It would be good to have a standard way of extending or switching the regular
expression syntax/processing engine that would not be implementation specific.
