11:25 Ven`` Started a bit working on captures, and now I'm like <I have no idea what I'm doing>
11:25 Ven`` I... guess I want to introduce a Match object.
11:25 Ven`` because Perl 6 relies on that for its nested matching groups goodness. As well as named groups.
14:25 masak I can see how we could use a Match object
14:26 masak question is more, do we stick to Perl 6's model of Match objects, or Python's?
14:27 masak hm. maybe neither
14:30 masak `<EXPR>` in the regex is problematic, since Perl 6 regexes would make that a named capture, but the (still negotiable) implicit capture<->parameter binding is strictly positional
