Summary: Please include regexdemo.py in main distribution
Details: I would like to recommend that Guido's regexdemo.py be included in the main distribution of 2.0. (It was included in as a "demo" in the source distribution of v1.5.2.)
I find regexdemo to be a very useful tool for debugging my REs. I think others would find it useful too, but since it is buried fairly far down in the source distribution, it is rather hard for newcomers to find. I therefore recommend you include it in the "tools" directory of the main distribution.
As you know, REs are very difficult to learn (and even to use after you "learn" them!), so I think an excellent aid like regexdemo.py should be given more prominence.
thanks as always,
