Er, where does this ::Rule::Result thing come from?

I was basing my implementation on Damian's:

    Quantifiers (except C<?> and C<??>) cause a matched subrule or
    subpattern to return an array of C<Match> objects, instead of just a
    single object.

As well as the PGE's implementation of treating the quantified capture as a
simple PerlArray PMC.
