That's the safe play for ES6, which must be prototyped and drafted this
year, pretty much limiting new complexity.
As noted in the other thread, we're now talking about a pattern language
for matching (refutably or irrefutably), which was proposed last year:
Happy to use es-discuss to work out something richer than ES6
rest-only-at-end. I write this not to nag anyone, just to make my own
position clear in case it sounded like I was against the idea of richer
patterns than rest and destructuring as currently proposed or drafted.
I'm not! Let's discuss.
