Yes, I'm aware of that. It is an issue that users will have to be  
aware of. However, I don't think it's a killer. I think Python  
regular expressions have enough in common with the PCRE (perl  
compatible regular expressions) library to be useful. For example, I  
think ^[^@]*@(.*\.)?sus(se)?\.ac\.uk$ has the same meaning in both  

If I'm wrong, then I can make do with .*sussex\.ac\.uk$ and .*susx\.ac
