musl is conservative about its regex syntax since extensions
are not portable across impementations so users cannot rely
on them.

i think this extension is not available in glibc and other
posix regex implementations either, it's a perl invention,
so it would be wrong to add it to musl, those who want perl
syntax can use the pcre lib.
