If all you're going to change is the parser, maybe it'd be easier to
get things to coexist if parsers were pluggable in the re module.

It's more generally useful, too. Would let re gain a PyParsing/SNOBOL
like expression "syntax", for example. Or a regular grammar syntax.
Neat for experimentation.
