There was a discussion in issue40984 that the repr must be eval-able. I don't feel very strongly about this, mainly because I don't think anyone ever does eval(repr(some_regex)). I'd be slightly sympathetic to wanting the eval to fail if the repr had to truncate its output, instead of succeeding because the string was still a valid, but different, regex.
