Don't you need to do this translation anyway, because Pat
and Exp use different constructors? Perhaps you can reduce
some of the lookup cases to looking up just Pat and Exp
(eg, looking up in a Body or Clause or Pat or Exp could
always give antiunifiers in terms of either Pat or Exp, so
you need only one type of Map)?
