I've just checked out the Oniguruma sources. I guess that adding new  
assertion types is probably beyond the scope of its pluggable syntax  
mechanism. And I imagine that's just the first, small hurdle...

So, more prosaically: support for folding where a language supports a  
mix of recursive and non-recursive syntaxes please :)
