Description:
------------
The POSIX regular expression functions have been marked as deprecated in
5.3.0 and are scheduled to be removed completely in PHP 6. Developers
are being told to switch to the PCRE functions instead. It would be of
great benefit to HUGE numbers of users if the POSIX functions, instead
of being dropped completely, were simply rewritten as wrappers for the
equivalent PCRE functions. This would solve two issues:
(1) There would only be one regex engine to support, not two.
(2) Existing scripts which use the POSIX functions would not need to be
rewriiten.

Expected result:
----------------
The POSIX functions would still work instead of failing with "function
not found"
