thanks. I'm a fan of the correspondence principle, and as we have
a LetCase, there should be a LambdaCase as well (the other seems
to be inspired by Lisp's cond?). but the syntax is slightly awkward.
is there a reason not to merge LambdaCase and Lambda, thus
addressing both my suggestion and the LambdaCase proposal?
f <pat> | <patguard> = <rhs>
\ <pat> | <patguard> -> <rhs>
case x of <arms>
(\ <arms> ) x
ps. strawpoll-2 has both LambdaCase and MultiWayIf as 'no'.
but that is numbers, not rationale..
