I wasn't specifically aware that the re module was doing the same

for instance, Windows path names in non-raw string literals will no

"the_other_user". Definite improvement.

The re module emitted deprecation warnings in 3.5. In 3.6 warnings become errors. The idea is that this allows to add new special sequences (like \p{...} or \R) in future.
