  no. 

  and there is nothing you can do with a 'case' that you can't do with
  a 'try'.

  i think a reasonable goal for Erlang v2 (Etwo?) is to get rid of
  cruft like 'if', 'case', 'catch', 'and', 'or', the old guards
  etc. and perhaps provide a more consistent API to the libraries (in
  a new namespace?)
