As per the Python documentation, the following regular expression should
produce a list containing the strings '6.7', 7.33', and '9':

re.findall('(-?\d+[.]\d+)|(-?\d+[.]?)|(-?[.]\d+)', 'asdf6.7jjjj7.33ff9')

Instead, it generates a list of tuples.  Either the documentation should
be changed to make it consistent with what re.findall is actually doing,
or, better yet, re.findall should be fixed.
