* LambdaCase \case: 3 (Christopher, Felipe, Gábor)
* LambdaCase \of: 1 (Edward)
* MultiClauseLambdas \of: 1 (Daniel)
* MultiClauseLambdas with \ in each clause: 1 (Donn)
* MultiClauseLambdas with layout rules tweaking: 1 (Tyson)
Note that LambdaCase variants do /not/ require parentheses around
patterns while MultiClauseLambdas variants do.
Did I forget/misunderstand someone?
It would be great to have GHC HQ input on the new proposals (layout
rules tweaking (Tyson) and case comma sugar (Edward)).
