Why is this so controversial? We're not talking about functional changes 
to the re module, we're talking about improving error messages. Firstly, 
the actual wording of error messages are not part of the API and are 
subject to change without notice. Secondly, nobody is talking about 
keeping the two modules syncronised on an on-going basis. This is just 
to improve the re error messages using regex as inspiration.
