No. See [ruby-talk:79047] and following.

-----------
[ruby-dev:21147] [Oniguruma] list of all captures
[ruby-dev:21174] [Oniguruma] Version 1.9.2

  TANAKA Akira suggested a new function, to capture all matchings for
  the one expression.  e.g.

    m = /(?@<name>\/\w+)+/.match("/usr/local/bin/ruby")
    p m['name']   #=> ["/usr", "/local", "/bin", "/ruby"]
