Some of links in re docs should lead to RegexObject.match()|
RegexObject.search() method but lead to re.match()|re.search() module 
function.

These are the places in 2.6 docs (in 2.7-3.2 versions' you'll find the 
bug in analogous places):

http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.compile
http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.RegexObject.match
http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.RegexObject.search
http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.MatchObject.pos
http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.MatchObject.endpos
http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.MatchObject.re
http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#re.MatchObject.string (<- here 
maybe both possibilities should be noted, which would mean changing not 
only link targets but also the content)

Thanks for the report, I fixed the references (and a few to compile())
in r74205.
