It was thus said that the Great Roberto Ierusalimschy once stated:

> It cannot raise errors. A cyclical reference is OK; it will happen with
> any recursive grammar (and the raison d'être for grammars in Lpeg is
> to write recursive patterns).
> As I said, the reason this bug is rare is because 'hascaptures' is
> called only after some other tests.
> > Also, will there be a new release soon?
> Probably yes, at least to fix this bug.
