Enhance regex to support backwards match

Description

Currently it is not possible to search for a regex backwards in a text using RegexMatcher.

Enhance regex to support backwards match.

Background: OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice would like to switch from the current regex implementation to ICU regex, but doing so right now would lose the feature of being able to search backwards in a text.
