Foundation already has NSRegularExpression. Do you mean that the
stdlib could potentially duplicate Foundation functionality? If so,
what are the implications for Foundation (and
swift-corelibs-foundation)? Does this also mean that other "stringy"
functionality could arrive in the stdlib, for example a Swifty JSON

Best wishes,
