instead of checking every what[i].matched as in the following

for (unsigned int i = 1; i < what.size(); ++i) {
        if (what[i].matched) {

I'd like to be able to have the subexpressions that matched accessible
directly. Something like

for (unsigned int i = 1; i < what.submatched.size(); ++i) {

so, if I have, say, 10 subexpressions, and only two matched, instead of
checking every what[i] (for i = 0..9), I could access directly to those
two subexpressions. It'd be much more efficient.
