Nothing (IIUC it's even the same C regex code under the hood.)  

Perl can't do anything that you can't also do in FORTRAN or COBOL or even a
Universal Turing Machine, either.  At one level, it's all a matter of
convenience, and perl's RE-as-language-syntax is much more convenient to use
for serious text hackery than python's RE-as-library-calls.

All of which is way OT for a mod_python list, of course.
