Summary: redefining SRE_CODE in Modules/sre.h

Initial Comment:
Taken from Modules/sre.h:

/* size of a code word (must be unsigned short or
   larger, and
   large enough to hold a Py_UNICODE character) */
#ifdef Py_UNICODE_WIDE
#define SRE_CODE unsigned long
#else
#define SRE_CODE unsigned short
#endif

#define SRE_CODE unsigned short

------------------

SRE_CODE is always an unsigned short.

That was easy enough; fixed in revision 2.21.16.1 of
Modules/sre.h.

Will need to go onto the trunk, later...

as neal points out, the 3rd define (after the #endif)
should be removed.

(my CVS workspace is broken right now, so I cannot
patch this myself -- at least not tonight...)

Regardless of the value of Py_UNICODE_WIDE, SRE_CODE will be
defined to unsigned short after the #ifdef because of the
#define after the #ifdef.

There is actually a warning produced that SRE_CODE is
redefined if Py_UNICODE_WIDE is set.

If SRE_CODE needs to be differerent, the 3rd #define of
SRE_CODE should be removed.  I tried this a while ago and
purify reported more errors.  (purify is still broken, so I
can't give any current info.)

What do you mean with "SRE_CODE is always an unsigned
short"; if sre.h defines it as something different, it is
different.

It also needs to be different for Py_UNICODE_WIDE: For
SRE_OP_LITERAL, a Py_UNICODE is the argument. If Py_UNICODE
is 4 bytes, SRE_CODE must be also four bytes.
