James, I think the setup statement should have been:

"import re\ndef escape(s):\n return re.sub(r'([][.^$*+?{}\\|()])', r'\\\1', s)")"

note the raw string literals.

The timings that I got after applying file20388 ( were:
>PCbuild\python.exe -m timeit -s "import re, string" "re.escape(string.printable)"
10000 loops, best of 3: 63.3 usec per loop

>python.exe -m timeit -s "import re, string" "re.escape(string.printable)"
100000 loops, best of 3: 19.3 usec per loop
