More Regexp Loop Breaking

Description

RFE: Add loop breaking to the code generated for regular expressions that could
potentially put the match engine into an infinite loop.

Loop Breaking is implemented already for (...)* and (...)+, where (...) is
something that could produce a zero-length match.

Loop breaking is missing on
(...){n,}
(...)*+
(...)*?
and other looping expressions
