I don't think it's a regex issue.  I googled for 
python+double-quote+interpolation and got this page:

I've done some work with Inline::Python, even hacked on it a little.  
You may need the Inline::C off of my server (or was that only with 
Inline::CPP?)  But, if you're trying to replicate the basic 
functionality in order to change it, you'll probably have better luck 
just hand-translating (or writing in python.)

I try to avoid python proper.  There's just something odd about not 
being able to shoot a good-sized hole through your foot.  It makes me 
feel cramped or something.
