Grouping in Django URL's

I wanted to include a regular expression in my Django URL's, but I didn't want to that be passed as an argument to the view. The answer is in the Python regular expression documentation:

So in my case a URL like:


Would match the URL:


But by using (?: only the id is passed to the view.
