[emacs] converting perl regex into elisp regexby LanX (Canon)

Before I reinvent the wheel does anybody already know about any code/modul doing this?
If not, is there a recommended way to parse perl's REs?

I really do not intend (or have the hubris to ask) to have the full scale perl RE functionality transported to emacs.
