I thought someone was working on the re module these days?  I thought there I'd seen some issues with patches etc?

Anyway, short term, sorry - no patch.  Medium/long term, yes it's possible, but please don't rely on it.

The simplest way to document it is as you suggest, I think - just extend the qualifier on lookback requiring fixed length to exclude references to groups (it does seem to *bind* groups correctly on lookback, so there's no need to exclude them completely).
