Re: GRegex

If the regex object is immutable, language bindings can treat it as a "value object" (like a string or GdkColor or GdkRectangle) even though it's refcounted for efficiency. Also immutable objects can be shared among threads without locking.

A GObject on the other hand is never immutable since the GObject base class has post-construct-modifiable state.
