You don't have to turn off backtracking for the whole regex. You can use
keep() in a few strategic places within your regex as follows:
sregex rx = ... >> keep(nil[ /*semantic action*/ ]) >> ...;
"nil" always succeeds and consumes 0 characters. It's a way to cause the
semantic action to execute immediately. Would something like that help you?
