I don't remember a time when I couldn't use regular expressions like
this in a bourne shell - been writing bourne shells since ... umm ...
1979 or so.  No, granted, I don't recall ever shell written over that
time, but I don't recall having problems in this area.  But then, I'm
old and the memory is going <grin>...
