Georg Brandl report at bugs.python.org
Sun Aug 24 22:33:52 CEST 2008

New submission from Georg Brandl <georg at python.org>:

Since \u and \U aren't interpolated in raw strings anymore, the re
module should support those escapes in addition to the \x and octal ones
it already does.  Attached patch.
