I believe this requirement is satisfied by the new analyze-string() function.

For example, to wrap parentheses around the first sequence of numeric digits in
a string, one could write:

let $x := analyze-string($in, '\d+')
return string-join(
  for $s in $x
  return (if ($s is $x/match[1]) then concat('(', ., ')') else string(.))

I am accordingly marking this as fixed; please feel free to reopen if you feel
this is not an adequate solution to the requirement.
