While it looks like a useful extension with a lot of bang for the buck,
I think I'd prefer to live without it; two reasons:
1) I'm a minimalist
2) I find that using my pattern combinators
and do-notation I get by very well without using any of the advanced
features of patterns. OK, I guess I'm a little biased.

almost no gain
