I meant to reply to this earlier, but APR doesn't have a regex matcher.
httpd uses PCRE for its regular expressions.

You are probably confusing it with apr_fnmatch (which is, indeed, what
libsvn_subr uses), but that doesn't interpret regular expressions. It's a
follows the POSIX fnmatch characteristics not POSIX regular expressions.

Namely, I believe fnmatch doesn't support [xyz]* expressions. I could be
wrong, but that's what the Solaris man page on fnmatch(5) leads me to
believe. -- justin
