The meaning of inline flags not at the start of regular expression is ambiguous. Current re implementation and regex in the V0 mode enlarge the scope to all expression. In V1 mode in regex they affect only the end of the expression.

I propose to deprecate (and then forbid in 3.7) the use of inline flags not at the start of regular expression. This will help to change the meaning of inline flags in the middle of the expression in future (in 3.8 or later).
