regexp support was planned but not done yet. (if someone know where I can download more free time !). The implementation should not be that hard, once you have the compiler to transform the string describing the regexp to an automaton. Note that to respect the framework, you have to deal with multiple patterns (should not be that hard). If you have pat1 and pat2, searching for (pat1|pat2) is not sufficient because for each match, you have to point which pattern matched.
We actually planned on doing that initially. You should note that if you want to generate one automaton for multiple patterns, that is not a regular language (and thus can not be represented by a FA or DFA.) You will have to try matching against the first pattern, then the next and so on.
