About regexp:

Could you possibly include the original string matched against the
 regexp pattern as the final element of the return value?  Sometimes
 one would want to simply pass the match result and extract fields
 from its indices, instead of passing both the result and the string
 originally matched against it.

Maybe a companion substitute() as in MOO?
