I really like the API (PCRE is used frequently in some of my code).  My
only concern is one of packaging.

Glib provides services that are generally assumed to always be
available.  This would imply either disabling GRegex when PCRE is not
present, or adding PCRE as a Glib dependency.  A third option is to
bundle PCRE with Glib.  The first two make Glib less standalone in
nature, and are less appealing.
