i am afraid that thread goes straight perpendicular to what re2 is
supposed to be, or do. my suggestion for these folks would be to
create a new, clean interface to stop the violence that comes with the
Python ``re`` interface, and open the thing up so one can plug in
``re`` implementations as are needed. when i absolutely need a
feature, i can always go to the slower machine; simpler regular
expressions could be dealt with more efficiently.
