Exponential regular expressions no longer throw an exception
Slow regexp searches should time out just as ordinary JS code times out. The old "regular expression too complex" exception was a neat trick, but that's not how we want it to work. The relimit pref is obsolete and should be removed.

Safari also hangs on this regular expression.
