PCRE 8.31 and 8.32 do indeed introduce new features as well as fix
various bugs, so I'm a bit undecided whether it's worth including them
in stable at this point, although slightly inclined for the inclusion
(we won't use the new features; so we will "simply" benefit from the
bugfixes or speed improvements).

In any case, planning for the future: surely I will ask for a 8.32
(8.33, perhaps) import in the 5.2 timeframe, and if distributions will
have already started including 8.32 before the feature freeze, it's
likely that I will submit some QRegularExpression patch that will make
Qt *require* 8.32.
