There are a lot of disadvantages in allowing variants to be singular at any
time. We've been all over this. But if we say they can be singular only
after a failed assignment, then you can pretty safely ignore the possibility
in most of your code... I think. I wonder what Eric and Dave think of this
or if they finally got tired of all the noise and tuned out :) Maybe this
is noise too :)
