Feature #1873: MatchData#[]: Omits All But Last Captures Corresponding to the Same Named Group

=begin
 I suspect that MatchData#[:symbol] should return an Array of values when the same named group has been matched multiple times.
 
   >> m = 'food'.match(/(?<f>oo)(?<f>d)/)
   => #<MatchData "ood" f:"oo" f:"d">
   >> m[:f]
   => "d"
   >> m.to_a
   => ["ood", "oo", "d"]
=end
