It's nice to be able to point to a standard for regexes, but Unicode properties
are an invaluable part of writing regexes when dealing with non-ascii text.

They are supported by Java, ICU, Perl, and PCRE.  If need be, they could be
enabled by a flag.

I'd definitely recommend providing \p{} and \P{} constructs covering the full
unicode standard, but would also highly suggest allowing \pX for single-char
properties too.
