Well, if you want to be picky, then my version is quadratic in the
size of the lists it `memq's over -- but that could be addressed
together with your point by doing something like converting

  (cas-cad-e foo [(a b c) bar] [(x y z) baz])


  (let ([t (assq foo '([a . 1] [b . 1] [c . 1]
                       [x . 2] [y . 2] [z . 2]))])
    (when (<= t 2)
      (when (<= t 1)

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
