We all use Unix/Linux ? You would be surprised how many wget users on
windows are out there.

Beside that, Those Who Know The Code better than me please consider how bad
portability issues in using native regexp engines could be.
Are the interfaces and capabilities all the same or are there consistent
differences between various flavors (gnu, several BSD, hpux, aix, sunos,
solaris, older flavours...). If so that would be a point favouring an
external library (hopefully supported on as many as possible flavours).
