Hello. Yesterday I reported https://bugs.python.org/issue32198 but
then was pointed to already existing
https://bugs.python.org/issue1693050 and friends.

>From reading these I came to find \b under

I confess I don't entirely grok all the intricacies. So my question:
isn't \b the Unicode-recommended way of identifying full Unicode-aware
word boundaries in regexes? If not, what is?
