Your pattern matching works well :)

Yes, we should definitely make this a compile-time error if possible!
This was the easy way out for the moment.

In general, there are some things that are currently unneeded from the
Rust standard library. When we get to remove those, many of those
intrinsics should go away, and then we can leave it as a link error.
