Yep, and Python doesn't need special syntax for regexps either.

I imagine regexps have been around long before perl, though I might be
wrong. That aside, the regexps in the core language don't seem to
benefit the perl in any significant way - apart from pleasing newbies
who might live under the fallacy that having a feature "built right
in" makes the language superior for the task in question.
