The argument could be 'match-string instead of t so it would be easier
to see what an actual call does.  And the argument could be for example
'match-beginning so `string-match' would return the begin of the match.
`looking-at', `re-search-forward', etc. could be handled the same way.

Well, I really don't know.  Stefan's arguments didn't convince me
entirely but usually he's right.  Sometimes he fails to understand more
simple-minded programmers' concerns ...
