Great question. And not that I know of! 

Now that we have the BH package (for really easy access to Boost by using
Boost headers via this CRAN package) I was thinking about a use case for
Boost regex and file reading, but haven't had time to do anything about it.

Other than Boost, we could possibly get access to the regexp libraries
already linked into R.  What use case did you have in mind?
