It may (or may not) be more clean, but it would be a lot more work. I have
implemented my suggested option. The code (in both pcre2_substitute() and
pcre2test) was simple. What took a lot more time was the documentation. It
would have been much more work to implement a new function and its test code
and even more documentation, and as I said before, I feel this is a very
minority requirement.

As for flags, there are still 11 free bits. :-)
