No - using recursive rules of the kind

 (rule   [maches what I want])
 (search (or rule (and (any) search)))

to advance over preceding text is not a good method in Emacs, this hits
Emacs' maximum recursion level after a bunch of lines if we advance one
character each time (which can't be avoided when searching text).  Is
there a better solution for this kind of problem?
