Python Regular Expressions in Python Introduction to Regular Expressions Groups

What would happen if we made all items optional?

If we were to encounter an error like we did halfway through, not getting certain items, would making all items option solve the problem or would it cause more trouble than it solved?

Marking all groups as optional would still work. The choice is up to the coder on how much flexibility to provide.
