I understand your skepticism about accepting match into CCL, but we can
consider cond as
a general and portable stuff. Many languages have a pattern matching built
into the language.
I believe it is very useful and it is deplorable (for me at least) that
there is no pattern matching
built into CCL that is very efficient
I think the match I wrote is concise and it looks beautiful (I do not know
about the implementation),
it remains to see if it is as I see it, that is why I wanted to contribute
the code and see how it can be
viewed by experts; if I was a CCL expert I would hack it and add match to
the language, but
unfortunately I am not.
