Valid warning.

I don't know why it issues DeprecationWarning but this is not the same
as the previous line.  In this case \w is invalid and, as far as I know,
 has always been invalid.  I think it should be a different warning but
I do understand why it is in a different code path in Python.

It doesn't issue any warning in 2.7 by the way.  It still prints the
same thing so it is still an invalid escape sequence.
