For Python 3.8, my ideas for faster startup time are:
- Add lazy compiling API or flag in `re` module. The pattern is compiled
when first used.
How about go the other way and allow compiling at Python *compile*-time? That would actually make things faster instead of just moving the time spent around.
I do see value in being less eager in Python but I think the real wins are hiding behind ahead-of-time compilation.
