[Pre-RFC] More use of pipe operator in match


Indeed. And if you have or-patterns in depth, you will have to do the backtracking in depth as well. For example, reusing an example suggested above, (range @ Range { start: 0 | 1, end: 5 | 6 }) if valid(range) would result in (at most) four tests.


Alright, with this feedback I’ve created an RFC, thank you all!.


If I saw this I would assume it was performing a bitwise or and then matching. This is a gotcha on the level of switch-case fallthrough.
