[Tutor] Regular expression grouping insert thingy

This is so trivial (or should be), but I can't figure it out.
I'm trying to do what in vim is
That is, "find a number followed by an x and put a "*" in between the
number and the x"
So, if the string is "6443x - 3", I'll get back "6443*x - 3"
I won't write down all the things I've tried, but suffice it to say,
nothing has done it. I just found myself figuring out how to call sed
and realized that this should be a one-liner in python too. Any ideas?
I've read a lot of documentation, but I just can't figure it out. Thanks.
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
