This is not unrelated: These are the docs for additional pcase patterns
defined elsewhere: pcase is extensible, and the pattern listing part in
the docstring is generated dynamically.  As a result of that conception
it may not read very fluently as a whole, but it's definitely nothing we
want to remove.

We clearly have some deficiencies, but the situation IMHO really is not
as horrible as Eli's sarcasm suggests.


Michael.
