As a crude guide of the speed difference, here's Python 2.6:

                         re          regex     86.53secs  260.19secs      13.70secs    8.94secs          15.66secs    9.09secs

Note that compiling regexes is a lot slower. I concentrated my efforts on the matching speed because regexes tend to be compiled only once, so it's not as important.

Matching speed should _at worst_ be comparable.
