Well, yes perhaps - but method one, or the variant I settled for :

test1(#foo{one=1}=Foo) ->
 ...

could very well be what I recently learned the English term for (when 
talking food or beverages) - an acquired taste ;)

At first I didn't like records at all, because of the somewhat whacky 
syntax, but now I use them for loads of things.

Anyways, thanks to all who provided feedback and for hearing that 
test1/1 wasn't just working by accident or something like that.
