QRegularExpression: add method for extracting the capturing group names
It may be useful to know which named capturing groups are defined in an regular expression, and for each of them, what's the corresponding index. This commit adds the needed method to QRegularExpression. Note that extracting the information doesn't happen while holding the mutex in the private -- pcre_fullinfo just reads information from the compiled pattern, so that's thread-safe.
