My issue is not about the formatting changes, I can live with them even if in 
some cases I think that it is a matter of taste.
The example about documentation strings is striking, why do I need triple 
quotes if the documentation string will only span a single line?

My main doubt, that I still did not get any feedback, comes from the regular 
expression changes. Those are in no way formatting changes...

And even if the current code is faulty, i.e. it works by accident, the 
proposed changes are wrong.
