In the end I think this is too disruptive for stable-2.0, for DSL-style
macros with large literal lists that have relied on symbolic matching.

I will apply it to master though.  Perhaps in the future we will bind
`else' and `=>' as well.  Also we can add some kind of
#:symbolic-literals option to syntax-case, if that's useful.
