You can have as many marked sub-expressions as you want, and refer to them
in the match_results structure once you have a match. What you can't do at
present is have a true back-reference say \12 in your expression. This is
basically a problem with the regex syntax, so if you know of a good syntax
extension that's already in use then it would trivial to support this.
