That is a good suggestion, I used it in C but it was a loooong time ago so I 
did forgot about it. :-)

However, I am only debugging old code, so it's not very useful then.

And also using a match as a case expression is not wise in any case, and I 
think erl_lint should be able to warn about that, the way C-lint does.

Vlad
