That could be done, the fhold/fexec would fix up p and immediately 
restart. Though it would change the semantics of fhold and fexec based 
on context, which in my opinions on language design is not good thing to 
do. I'd feel better about adding another command.

No worries, all computer users are welcome :)

Follow context allows you to specify what should come after the pattern, 
but does not consume it as part of the pattern. You write:

'match me' / 'match but do not consume me';
