I feel it can always convert to Hash because even if it doesn't use named captures, the numbering is 1-origin.

```
irb(main):001:0> /(a)(b)(c)/.match("abc")
=> #<MatchData "abc" 1:"a" 2:"b" 3:"c">
irb(main):002:0> /(a)(b)(c)/.match("abc").to_h
=> {1=>"a", 2=>"b", 3=>"c"}
```

Feature #11999: MatchData#to_h to get a Hash from named captures

class MatchData
  def to_h
    self.names.map { |n| [n, self[n]] }.to_h
  end
end

p '12'.match(/(?<a>.)(?<b>.)(?<c>.)?/).to_h #=> {"a"=>"1", "b"=>"2", "c"=>nil}
~~~

Sometimes I want to get a Hash from named capture, but currently I have to use #names + #captures. How about adding MatchData#to_h for convenience way?
