I think it's awful, personally.

I don't recall any discussion about whether it would be useful
either. Unlike for, say, the yield stuff which has to be debated

There are much better, more lisp idiomatic, libs for doing pattern
matching which pcase should give way to imo.

Shadchen for example.

Pattern matching is an excellent tool for programmers. I think pcase is
a poor implementation for EmacsLisp.
