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 :)
