Except there is no error handling for situations when 
re.search() returns None, so one shouldn't use it anyway (most 
of the time). Which seems to me like another nice example why 
one should stay away from this style as much as possible. I am 
too lazy to be tempted into this 
nice-example-terrible-production-code world.
