[R] Finding non disjoint regular expressions

Is there any way I can use the gregexpr functions (or a different function) in a manner that will also return overlapping (i.e. non disjoint) regular expressions?  

For instance, when running gregexpr("AAA","AAAAAA"), I get two matches, one at position 1 and one at position 4. I'd like to receive 4 matches at positions 1, 2, 3 and 4.
