regexp.h: Move bits around

This commit moves some bits in extflags around so that all the unallocated
ones are at the boundary between the unshared portion and the portion
shared with op.h.  This allows them to be allocated in the future to go
either way, without affecting binary compatibility at that time.

The high-order bits are unaffected, but the low order ones move to fill
the gap.

made when I created it.

I also realized the the new mechanism of using shifts allowed
RXf_PMf_STD_PMMOD_SHIFT to actually control things, rather than be a

srand: change to return its seed

This commit changes srand to to return the seed instead of always
returning 1.  The motivation behind this is to allow applications to not
have to come up with their own pseudo-random generator if they want
repeatable results.

The previous return behavior has never been documented.  Note that it is
possible, but very unlikely, for the seed to end up being 0, which means
that if someone were relying on the undocumented previous behavior of
srand returning true, that in very rare instances it would return 0,
failing, and the next time they ran it, it would succeed, possibly
leading to puzzlement and very rare unexplained failures.

version the module has been compiled against. If the versions do not match, an
exception is thrown.
