It's sort of related to Drew's concerns in that Emacs deals with the N*M
problem by setting M=1, hence why only cl-loop gets the pressure to add
more enhancments.

There are some practical problem with iter-defun though: it has several
bugs on which there doesn't seem to be any movement[1][2][3], it's
reported to be slow[4], and cl-loop's iter-by keyword is not documented
at all (that could be easily fixed, at least).  I wonder if streams[5]
is a better direction.  It already has stream-regexp, though it returns
match-data rather than a matched string.

(package-install 'stream)
(require 'stream)
(require 'seq)

(seq-do (lambda (m)
          (set-match-data m)
          (print (match-string 0)))
        (stream-regexp (current-buffer) (rx digit)))

(cl-loop with matches = (stream-regexp (current-buffer) (rx digit))
         for m = (stream-pop matches) while m
         do (set-match-data m) (print (match-string 0)))
