Bug Description

ok, understood and accepted.

What you want is a findAnyListAll(), that returns a list of match lists, where each match list has all matches as if a findAll() has been made for the respective pattern.

I accept this as a feature request.

As a workaround you might dispatch a findAllList() for each pattern to parallel threads.

Hi, I can find the best matches from list of patterns using:
matches = region.findAnyList(list_of_patterns)

I can also find all matches of a single pattern in region using:
matches = region.getAll(pattern)

How do I find all matches of each item in list_of_patterns in one go? It's performance sensitive, I want to take single screen snippet and perform the searches in parallel.

Do I have to somehow code this more low-level-ish using Finder class on taken image from screen.capture(region)? This results in the image being saved to disc and then read back, which isn't the fastest. Is that what happens with region.find(pattern) internally too, does it go through temp storage?

Thanks a ton!
