Random notes on R12B-3 (June 11, 2008) documentation
of the re module

1. misspelling of 'be' in the sentence
"There should bee no need to go directly to the PCRE library documentation"

2. Need to define 'opaque' as used in

 mp() = Opaque datatype containing a compiled regular expression.

Hopefully it means something other than as defined by

"2 a*:* hard to understand or explain <*opaque* prose>
b*:* obtuse <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/obtuse>,
thickheaded <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/thickheaded> "

A link to where opaque is defined would be helpful.
