 ``(?P<name>...)``
    Similar to regular parentheses, but the substring matched by the group is
-   accessible via the symbolic group name *name*.  Group names must be valid Python
-   identifiers, and each group name must be defined only once within a regular
-   expression.  A symbolic group is also a numbered group, just as if the group
-   were not named.  So the group named 'id' in the example below can also be
-   referenced as the numbered group 1.
+   accessible within the rest of the regular expression via the symbolic group
+   name *name*.  Group names must be valid Python identifiers, and each group
+   name must be defined only once within a regular expression.  A symbolic group
+   is also a numbered group, just as if the group were not named.  So the group
+   named ``id`` in the example below can also be referenced as the numbered group
+   ``1``.
 
    For example, if the pattern is ``(?P<id>[a-zA-Z_]\w*)``, the group can be
    referenced by its name in arguments to methods of match objects, such as
-   ``m.group('id')`` or ``m.end('id')``, and also by name in pattern text (for
-   example, ``(?P=id)``) and replacement text (such as ``\g<id>``).
+   ``m.group('id')`` or ``m.end('id')``, and also by name in the regular
+   expression itself (using ``(?P=id)``) and replacement text given to
+   ``.sub()`` (using ``\g<id>``).
 
 ``(?P=name)``
    Matches whatever text was matched by the earlier group named *name*.

-
-        Before building:
-
-            Make sure you have shared versions of the libraries you
-            want to use with Python. You will have to compile them
-            yourself, or download precompiled packages.
-
-            Recommended libraries:
-
-                ncurses-4.2
-                readline-4.2a
-                zlib-1.1.4
-
-        Build:
-
-            $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/python
-            $ make
-
-            Python is always built as a shared library, otherwise
-            dynamic loading would not work.
-
-        Testing:
-
-            $ make test
-
-        Install:
-
-            # make install
-            # pkgmanager -a /usr/python

-        AtheOS issues:
-
-            - large file support: due to a stdio bug in glibc/libio,
-              access to large files may not work correctly.  fseeko()
-              tries to seek to a negative offset.  ftello() returns a
-              negative offset, it looks like a 32->64bit
-              sign-extension issue.  The lowlevel functions (open,
-              lseek, etc) are OK.
-            - sockets: AF_UNIX is defined in the C library and in
-              Python, but not implemented in the system.
-            - select: poll is available in the C library, but does not
-              work (It does not return POLLNVAL for bad fds and
-              hangs).
-            - posix: statvfs and fstatvfs always return ENOSYS.
-            - disabled modules:
-                - mmap: not yet implemented in AtheOS
-                - nis: broken (on an unconfigured system
-                  yp_get_default_domain() returns junk instead of
-                  error)
-                - dl: dynamic loading doesn't work via dlopen()
-                - resource: getrimit and setrlimit are not yet
-                  implemented
-
-            - if you are getting segmentation faults, you probably are
-              low on memory.  AtheOS doesn't handle very well an
-              out-of-memory condition and simply SEGVs the process.
-
-        Tested on:
-
-            AtheOS-0.3.7
-            gcc-2.95
-            binutils-2.10
-            make-3.78
+Windows: When executing Python scripts on the command line using file type
+        associations (i.e. starting "script.py" instead of "python script.py"),
+        redirects may not work unless you set a specific registry key.  See
