So this would be a way to (1) rewrite f-strings as regexes; (2) with named capture groups assigned to locals() instead of re.Match.groupdict()?

Would it default to `r'(.*?)'` ?

But locals().update() isn't a supported operation, except in the
situation where locals() is globals(). So what you're suggesting would
work fine in the REPL but not in any production usage.
