regular expression syntax the same in Python, Perl and grep?

How similar is Python's re module (regular expressions) compared
to Perl's and grep's regular expression syntaxes?

I really hope regular expression syntax is sufficiently standardized
we don't have to learn new dialects everytime we move from one
language or shell command to another.
