`regexp string' is also the same order as `list-matches' and
`fold-matches'. Probably best to keep it that way if this is in the

FYI this can be achieved by changing the inner part to:
(s (substring string start end))
(groups (map (lambda (n) (match:substring m n))
(iota (1- (match:count m)) 1))))
(list `(,@ll ,s ,@groups) (match:end m) tail)))
Note: using srfi-1 iota
