Hmm.  For completeness?   I'm having trouble imaging why you'd want to
match a literal hash table.  Or boxes.  The other options make more
sense.  Oh well.

I wish I'd been able to figure that out on my own.  Perhaps there
should be another example that shows catching result value(s) and
doing something with them.
