Advance notice: Remove regex package on 2001-02-07

Since Cygwin 1.3.7, the Cygwin API contains the POSIX regex calls.

For that reason, the "regex" package is no longer needed, except other
packages depend on it.

The only package in the Cygwin net distribution which was dependent of
"regex" was OpenSSH.  This isn't any longer true with OpenSSH-3.0.2p1-5.

For that reason, I will remove the regex package in 2 weeks from today.
