A peek at the roadmap for pattern matching and more

Several folks have asked that I sketch out a little more of the roadmap
for pattern matching, so that we can better evaluate the features being
discussed now (since, for example, the semantics of pattern matching are
heavily influenced by nested patterns.)
I've checked into two drafts which are VERY ROUGH, but which correspond
to the next two logical increments after patterns in switch.
This document outlines the semantics of deconstruction patterns and
nested patterns, and declaration of deconstructors in classes.
This one addresses the challenge of "mutating" immutable objects such as
records and inline classes, and builds on deconstructors.
(There are some teasers for related features, mostly to put these in
context, but I don't want to get distracted on those features until
these are nailed down, so take them as merely context.)
