Version 4.2.0 (2006/07/18)of Oniguruma introduced a new element for regular expressions, back reference with nest level ("\k", and "\k"). This feature was removed for Ruby in Oniguruma version 4.2.3 (2006/08/11) with the remark: 2006/08/07: [spec] move definition of USE_BACKREF_AT_LEVEL into NOT_RUBY. This feature should be available for Ruby usage, because it adds a useful function and is already there and tested.


An already implemented and tested functionality was removed for Ruby usage.


Solution is already implemented and tested.
