--- Comment #1 from Philip Hazel <ph10@???> ---
Thank you for the comprehensive patch. I am slightly surprised that anybody is
considering the details of pcre2_maketables(), because I thought Unicode was
taking over the world. :-)

However, I see no problem in adding pcre2_maketables_free() as you have
suggested, and indeed, it probably should have been there already as there are
free() functions for everything else. I will implement it in due course.

I don't see any new API happening in the foreseeable future, but yes, an opaque
type should have been used. I wasn't paying enough attention when PCRE2 was
created. Probably because in my mind this feature is obsolescent.
