Absolutely. It's even better, pattern matching over Maps is one of the _things_
that makes it better than Proplists. But, there's still a thing that might make
us unable to say "it's better", or even put Maps versus Proplists, that's
duplicate keys. We cannot add the same key multiple times in Maps.
