New submission from Edmund Eyles <hotel at heddonsgate.co.uk>:

The documentation for Python 2.7.2 has a section of examples for the regular expression match() function, based on a poker hand, at section  These examples show a suit of cards as having 14 cards!  The ace is counted twice, as '1' and 'a'.  Remind me not to play poker against the author.  

I would suggest changing the range of the characters that represent the cards' denominations to [2-9tjqka], with a 't' representing a 10, rather than using a '0', and not using either the '0' or the '1'.
