I once tried to write a generic wrapper using your code, but I failed. I probably just didn't take enough time to play with it, but that was about the point where I stopped working on this last time.

    Even if you don't use the call stack, I think that the regex engine is probably the wrong choice - it's just not made to be used that way easily (as you've found out :-)

    Implementing backtracking isn't really that hard. All you really need is a stack. I'd start there if it was me.
