python3, regular expression and bytes text

You cannot. First, \w in re.LOCALE works only when the text is encoded 
with the locale encoding (cp1252 in your case). Second, re.LOCALE 
supports only 8-bit charsets. So even if you set the utf-8 locale, it 
would not help.

Regular expressions with re.LOCALE are slow. It may be more efficient to 
decode text and use Unicode regular expression.
