Remove "Named" prefix from class names

Description

Removing the "Named" prefix in "NamedMatcher" and "NamedPattern" allows the developer to switch between regex implementations (which commonly use "Matcher" and "Pattern" for classnames) by simply changing package names. Since we're mirroring the constructs of the Java 7 implementation, the user would be able to easily change from com.google.code.regexp to java.util.regex in Java 7 (or vice-versa).
