Regular expression for matching IPA characters in Unicode?

Hi Pythoneers,

Which is the best way of checking that a given unicode string only 
contains IPA characters, e.g. characters in the range \u0250-\u02AF?
I guess a regular expression would do it, just can't figure out how to 
implement that expression.

Code snippets are most welcome.

Best regards,
