If you provide Applicative and Alternative instances for your getter
monads (perhaps you already do?), that will get us very close to the
kind of notational succinctness that Erlang's bit-level pattern
matching gives, using entirely general Haskell mechanisms, and without
the fuglitude of TH. That, I think, would be just lovely.
