    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.

This adds too much complexity, I think.
