Regular expressions and sub

Hey hey --
I've got a question about regular expression substitions. Basically,
I want to do something like this:
re.sub(r"(stuff)|(blah)", r"I was \00", "stuff blah")
Which would yield the string "I was stuff I was blah" -- but I get "I
was \x00 I was \x00" because apparently the replace string is simply
being interpreted as a normal string, and not a regular expression.
So, my question is, is there a simple way to do what I want?
