You might be right, I'll think about it. I want to be able to change
the meaning of the cycle elements (*a* *b*) dynamically. It appears to
me conceptionally somewhat clearer and easier to read doing it outside
of the cycle than to implement this with nested pattern constructs,
especially if elements occur more than once in a pattern.

Thanks a lot for your help and advice,
