A nested regex *always* results in nested match results. Xpressive
can't know in general that the regex currently being defined is
non-recursive, and any other behavior would lead to inconsistencies.

I don't think there's a general way to do what you're trying to do.
That's a bummer. But since your regex is non-recursive, you can use
the following hack to flatten your regex out and get the behavior you
const auto yyyymmdd = boost::proto::deep_copy(
(Year=_d>>_d>>_d>>_d) >> (Month= _d>>_d) >> (Day= _d>>_d));
const auto hhmmss = boost::proto::deep_copy(
Notice the "auto" and the "deep_copy".
