I considered this also and followed the following rule (from
cvswrite.html) since regex.c is part of glibc:
Maintainers are free to import files maintained outside the tree
from their official versions without explicit write approval. Such
files would include config.guess and config.sub.
Do you suggest that next time a change is made to regex.c that I
should commit it to gcc's libiberty?
