Up until yesterday I had presumed that guards only applied to
functions. But I was poking about in the Random module and discovered
that you can write things like
a | x > 1 = 1
| x < -1 = -1
| otherwise = x
where 'a' clearly isn't a function. Seems like a nice readable format
to use. Probably everyone except me already knew this already though.
