Thanks - I see how that could work, I'll try it.
But really I was wondering if there was something like:
buildCP2 :: Int -> ExpQ
buildCP2 k =
[|\(SimpleM ~a1 ~a2 ~a3) (SimpleM ~b1 ~b2 ~b3) -> (SimpleM $e1 $e2
where (e1,a1,b1) = bitToExprs 0 k
(e2,a2,b2) = bitToExprs 1 k
(e3,a3,b3) = bitToExprs 2 k
bitToExprs:: Int -> Int -> (ExpQ,PatQ,PatQ)
Where ~a1 would mean "look for something called a1 returning a pattern,
and slot it into the pattern part of the lambda in the appropriate spot".
I'm guessing no such syntax exists?
