[docs] [issue32913] Improve regular expression HOWTO

Joshua Li report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Joshua Li <joshua.r.li.98 at gmail.com>:

"Python HOWTOs are documents that cover a single, specific topic, and attempt to cover it fairly completely."

It would be quite helpful if the section "non-capturing-and-named-groups" in the regex HOWTO contained at least a mention and short usage example of the re.match.groupdict method, something I have found to be pythonic and useful, yet it does not appear frequently in the docs.

I will be submitting a PR for this.
