Is this "re" the regular expression module? If so, it's a standard
library module, so PyPy provides one too, rewritten in RPython. In
fact it is expected to be much faster than CPython's in the long run,
because regular expressions also use the JIT to compile regular
expression objects (which are originally some kind of bytecode).
