New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

re.error doesn't have its own docstring and inherits it from Exception when format pydoc output: "Common base class for all non-exit exceptions." This is wrong of course.

Proposed patch adds a docstring for re.error. It overrides Exception docstring and documents additional re.error attributes.
