New submission from Joshua Li <>:

"Python HOWTOs are documents that cover a single, specific topic, and attempt 
to cover it fairly completely."

It would be quite helpful if the section "non-capturing-and-named-groups" in 
the regex HOWTO contained at least a mention and short usage example of the 
re.match.groupdict method, something I have found to be pythonic and useful, 
yet it does not appear frequently in the docs.

I will be submitting a PR for this.
