Okay, I can live with that. But normalizing an SRE is not a matter of
normalizing the strings in the SRE: indeed, that will break it. So at
the very least I think a normalize-sre procedure must be provided that
takes an SRE and does the nitty-gritty of selectively expanding charsets
into disjunctions of sequences. That would not be incompatible
with PCRE, because its effect is global.
