In Mule regexps there is a \c construct which matches a user-definable
class. I'm not sure if it works correctly in XEmacs. If it does, it
should be fairly easy to reuse that code to implement hard-coded
classes for [:alpha:] and the like.
Unfortunately, the POSIX classes like [:alpha:] are probably not
well-defined in a Mule environment.
Eg, you say that "you don't let non-ISO-8859-2 characters into your
BBDB". I think that we really want (to have the option of) character
classes being locale-dependent.
