It seems that escape is pretty dumb. The documentations says that
re.escape escapes all non-alphanumeric characters, and it does that
faithfully. It would seem more useful to have a list of meta-characters
and just escape those. This is more true in Py3k when str can have
thousands of possible characters that could be considered alphanumeric.
