Thanks for the explanation.  I have to admit that i am still 
somewhat confused by the situation :-)

Sure, go ahead.  It would make a lot of sense, i think, if you paste 
your reasoning in your mail into a "README.txt" file in pypy/lib 
under the section "regular expression related modules in PyPy" 
with date and author :-)  I remember that Anders had better success
regarding some regression tests by just using the plain CPython re.py, 
maybe he can mention here some details as well.
