Missing feature.  query-replace-regexp offers this sort of replacement
only in interactive use (it implements it mostly by translating the
replacement string into a list which gets interpreted specially by
perform-replace).  I have taken a look at the respective code in
replace.el, and it is not really prepared for doing string replacements
right now.
