sre_compile_remove_groups.patch removes the groups parameter from _sre.compile(). A first step to simplify the API.

I prefer to keep most of the code in pure Python, to have code easier to maintain. So I prefer to not accept only groupindex. I prefer to build both (indexgroup, groupindex) in pure Python and pass them to the C code.

I pushed my patch sre_types.patch.
