I made the minimal change that implements the functionality suggested, in
terms of find/rfind, they return -1. The least painful way to replace it
with index is:

except ValueError:
    i = -1

As for the plain except clauses, that was just laziness on my part. It's not
meant to be stylistically consistent or beautiful, rather it is meant to be
functional and as a starting point. Feel free to change/rewrite the patch.
The GENERAL CASE, i.e. one that is applicable throughout the code is the
try/except clauses shown above.
