FWIW, I'd love seeing the updated regex module in 3.2.  Please do bring it up on python-dev.

Looking at the latest module on PyPI, I noted that the file is very long (~3500 lines), even though it is quite compressed (e.g. no blank lines between methods).  It would be good to split it up.  This would also remove the need for underscore-prefixing most of the identifiers, since they would simply live in another (private) module.
Things like the _create_header_file function should be put into utility scripts.  The C file is also very long, but I think we all know why :)

It would also be nice to see some performance comparisons -- where is the new engine faster, where does it return matches while re just loops forever, and where is the new engine slower?
