[Python-Dev] _sre as part of python.dll

What is the reason for _sre.pyd being a separate DLL? On Unix, it is
incorporated into the executable by default; regular expressions are
central for Python and cannot be omitted.

Would anybody object if I change the Windows build process so that it
stops having _sre as a separate target?
