---------------------------------------

Hi [~till.rohrmann],

Thank you for your comment. I like your idea better. Since no one seems to work on this, I
would like to help with this.
I can start with the + operator and create a PR for it so we can decide if I go in the right
direction with this and then add support for other operators in later PRs.

> It would be a good addition to extend the pattern API to support quantifiers known from
regular expressions (e.g. Kleene star, ?, +, or count bounds). This would considerably enrich
the set of supported patterns.
> Implementing the count bounds could be done by unrolling the pattern state. In order
to support the Kleene star operator, the {{NFACompiler}} has to be extended to insert epsilon-transition
between a Kleene start state and the succeeding pattern state. In order to support {{?}},
one could insert two paths from the preceding state, one which accepts the event and another
which directly goes into the next pattern state.
