Bug Report -- replace-regexp-in-string from subr.el

I noticed that the lisp function replace-regexp-in-string from emacs does not pass the sub-_expression_ match when the rep is a function call rather than a string.  
For Example:
  (defun samscat (s)
      (concat "[" s "]"))
 (replace-regexp-in-string "\\(foo\\).*\\'" 'samscat " foo foo" nil nil 1))

" [foo foo] foo"
" [foo] foo"

looking at the code, I notice that the sub-_expression_ is hard-coded on line 3642 of subr.el.gz:
    (funcall rep (match-string 0 str)))
rather than:
     (funcall rep (match-string (or subexp 0) str)))

I hope this is helpful!  

Here's my about emacs screen:
This is GNU Emacs, one component of the GNU/Linux operating system.
