When calling repr() on a compiled regex pattern like this:

> import re
> repr(re.compile('foo'))

you don't get the pattern of the regex out of the compiled form. Also all my research has shown no getter to allow this.

I noticed this in my application because I was unable to show good error messages for things involving regexes, which is a shame.

So please add the actual regex to the repr() form of the compiled regex, or alternatively provide a getter / property to get at it.
