  Heh ... I forgot about that.  

  I looked at re.lua last night and realized my own proposal could be done
in one line of code, much like Alex's proposal is also one line of code. 
I'm not wedded to my syntax [1] but I would like the ability to do a folding
capture added to re, that way I don't have to rely upon a custom version
just to have nice looking code.

  Please, Roberto?  Please?


[1]	I based mine off the named group capture; Alex based his off the
	match-time capture.
