I like that idea.  I always found it rather confusing
that names were _also_ numbers.

This reminds me, historically in IrRegex it was an error
to use the same name multiple times, but due to popular
demand the semantics were changed so that you could,
and requesting a named submatch would return the first
defined submatch with that name.

This is also consistent with PCRE, so I expect no
objection to specifying it so in SRFI 115.
