Does Haskell provide a mechanism to cache compiled RegExes across 
program runs, ie to save them into a shared library or dfa 
instantiation? (I have used such tools in the .NET and Java 
environments...) I would think that boring files change rarely enough 
that I am curious if this would be something worth investigating.
