Since _sre.compile is not a public API, and is called only with exact list/dict/tuple types in the stdlib, I prefer to ignore possible differences between base classes and subclasses. This makes the code cleaner.

Searching on GitHub shows that usages of _sre.compile() in third-party code are not compatible with current _sre.compile() since all arguments now are mandatory and indexgroup must be a tuple, not None.
