I propose changing 'regexp' to 'sre-regexp' for future consistency with 'pcre-regexp'.

There will be no `pcre-regexp'.  All of the functions in
this SRFI will work with the regexps compiled by `pcre'.
That is, there is only one compiled regexp type.

I am confused. I thought 'regexp' was a procedure which took a <sre> and compiled it into an <re>. And I though 'rx' was syntax which expanded into (regexp '(: <sre> ...)).

Yes, it is.  And my earlier mail described a `pcre' syntax.
Nowhere was `pcre-regexp' proposed.
