Sounds right to me, and it *should* be orthogonally added to the 're'
module coincidentally simultaneously with the change to the string
I have to say, it would be nice if
would work. That is, if the argument is an re pattern object instead
of a string, it would be nice if it were understood appropriately,
just for symmetry's sake. But it's hardly necessary.
Presumably in the re module, there would be a function like
re.partition("\s", "foo bar")
for one-shot usage, or the expression
