New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

Proposed patch removes following deprecated re features:

* Three unused not documented functions:  isident(), isdigit() and isname(). They were deprecated since Python 3.3 (issue14462).

* '\' + ASCII character now is error if this combination is not defined. This allows to add new control combinations without breaking compatibility. This was deprecated since Python 3.5 (issue23622).

* Support for re.LOCALE with string patterns or with re.ASCII. This was deprecated since Python 3.5 (issue22407).
