test_sre.py should work (if you compare the output against the
output/test_sre file, that is -- see the repository copy of that
file for a list of things that are expected to break...)

I think test_tokenize should work too...

test_xmllib appears to be broken on my box (possibly caused by
SRE).  test_strftime complains about tons of stuff on my Win95
box; dunno if it's done that way on purpose...
