I agree, but this is came from standard error messages which are not 
consistent. I opened a thread on Python-Dev.

"expected a bytes-like object" and "expected str instance" are standard error 
messages raised in bytes.join and str.join, not in re. We could change them

Agree. I'll change this in re. What message is better in case of overflow: "the 
repetition number is too large" (in re) or "repeat count too big" (in regex)?
