Regex for matching the snapshot API

Eyo! Not sure if anyone would find this useful, but I needed to parse the snapshot api easily, so I wrote a regex, and sharing it here for anyone who may find it useful. Not important enough to go on the wiki page for it, so I put it here as "extra info". It is written in python but should be easy to grab and port over to stuff like perl, ruby, and php.
