[Haskell] Nested guards?

Lately I have been using pattern guards more than usual and I find
that occasionally I need to nest them (i.e., I have alternatives with
a common prefix). This seems to happen when I need to do some
preliminary checking, followed by some decision making. Here is an
| Just xs <- parse text
, | "field1" `elem` xs = ... do one thing ...
| "field2" `elem` xs = ... do something else ...
server _ = ... invalid request ...
As far as I can see this should be a fairly simple change to the
pattern bindings extension. Would anyone else find this a useful
feature, and if so what syntax should we use?
