      When I apply this search:

      /\v([ \t]|^)[0-9]+\_s

      to this line:

      123 123.0 123. 456 0.123 .123 789

      it stops only at each integer. Is that close enough?
      (It includes leading space. But perhaps \@<= could fix that, if it's

      I would have expected

      /\v[ \t^][0-9]+\_s

      to also match, but '^' isn't working for me as "start of line" in the
      character class. (It is only as first character in the class (Vim calls
      that a "collection"), that it would negate the class.)

      The regex has the benefit of being largely posix, just using vim's \_s
      as shorthand for (whitespace or EOL). (Most posix implementations have
      extensions, so why shouldn't vim?)
