It's not ideal; it looks similar to 3-clause BSD but is written in an
informal style, with the liability disclaimer phrased as a fourth
licensing restriction.  That might create doubts as to whether it meets
the usual criteria that people find important (DFSG-free, non-copyleft,
GPL-compatible).  We already get complaints about the wording
differences between many similar licenses in the tree (I got one just
this week about the license in the old version of the Gladman AES code
we have in lib/crypto, for instance).

I didn't see a response to the idea of wrapping std::regex, which I
believe ships with Visual Studio and wouldn't require us to add code to
the tree or instructions for the dev environment setup.
