None taken. I believe Ganesh might take your more specific regex and
use that with findall() grouping to get what he wants. It is always a
good practice to be more specific in composing regular expressions,
carelessly composed PCRE (where P stands for Perl ;) ) regex can lead
to exponential complexity for simple inputs.

Really ?
I beg to differ.
