I welcome any counter-example to the eval()'able property in the stdlib.

I do believe in this rule as hard and fast, because it works for small patterns, only bitting you when you grow, probably programmatically (so exactly when you actually could need the repr).

Furthermore, 200 seems very low anyway by today standards. I mean, if you want a repr in the first place, then chances are that you want it full if (reasonably) possible.

If a string repr's itself fully no matter what, why should re.compile arbitrarily decide to truncate its argument?
