re.MULTILINE affects the meaning of ^ and $ - do they match only the
beginning and end of the target string (the default) or do they match
the beginning or end of any line in the string.
re.DOTALL affects the meaning of . - does it match newlines or not?
The docs on these flags are pretty clear, take a look.
