I haven't heard anything.  The last time Dmitry (the one who wrote
std.regex) mentioned this, he said he was going to look into how to fix
the problem.  But I haven't heard anything since then.

It's kinda sad because std.regex used to be touted as the fastest regex
engine even compared to other regex libraries. But it seems others have
caught up since while we've stagnated. :-/
