I also vote +1 for lambda-case, and abstain for lambda-if.

I don't think multiple-clause lambdas being desirable should be an
argument against lambda-case. After all, we can also define top-level
functions with either multiple clauses or a single case expression.
Haskell has always followed the TMTOWTDI school of thought with
regards to syntax, as far as I know. And lambda-case has the notable
advantage that someone has gone and implemented it.
