I am using Unicode regexes in the form of properties: \p{} and these are not standard in the re module. I have to use the new regex module, which has to be installed separately.

I would like to see the replacement of re with regex in the future Python versions. I was not sure where to post my request and I used this bug tracker with the enhancement category. I hope this is not a mistake.

See issue12734 for adding the support of properties in re.

See issue2636 for replacing re with regex.
