Instead of a new flag, a '*' could be put after the quantifier, eg:

    (\d+)(?:\.(\d+)){3}*

MatchObject.group(1) would be a string and MatchObject.group(2) would be
a list of strings.

The group references could be \g<1>, \g<2:0>, \g<2:1>, \g<2:2>.

However, I think that it's extending regexes too far; something else
should be used, eg pyparsing or some type of context-free grammar with
optional constraints.
