Normally I agree with Derrick on this point, though I'm less vocal about 
it.  However, in this case, I have to disagree.  "Regexp" is an 
abbreviation, standing for "regular expression".  While the use of 
apostrophes in forming plurals of abbreviations is now considered 
deprecated in most cases, I'd hardly call it "abusive".
