There are few people here who understand the _sre code, so I'm not
sure you'll get answers.  Given how critical this code is and given
that Fredrik is adamant that the code needs to continue to run with
all versions of Python starting with 1.5.2, I'd rather not mess with
it much in terms of adding new features.  Maybe you can create your
own code fork for now?
