Done with the attached patch. It required changing and renaming
re::Tie::Hash::NamedCapture to Tie::Hash::NamedCapture as it needs to
be in /lib but the makefile code for distclean is set up to delete
lib/re so the easiest workaround was to just move it out of the
ext/re/ branch and rename it so it wasnt under lib/re at all.

The patch only includes the add, and not the delete. (Not sure why svn
does that)

Also the process of going from ext/re/re.xs => ext/re/re.c =>
universal.c meant that the new code that ended up in universal.c is
kinda crude. It could do with some cleanup of the automatically added
code done by the XS=>C converter and maybe a review by someone who
knows XS better than I do. Anyway, for now tho its fine IMO.

The patch includes changes that would come from a regen. But it might
be a good idea to redo it.
