Right you are, it seems that python's regexp implementation is terribly slow when doing replacements with a substitution in them. (fixing the broken test, as you pointed out changed the timing to 97.6 usec vs the in-error-reported 18.3usec.)

Oh well. I still think it's crazy not to use re for this in its own module. Someone just needs to fix re to not be horrifically slow, too. :)
