  If you can figure out a way to do it such that
unwrapping is only applied for arguments that are
*explicitly* intended to match terminals, then
it would work. If you imagine the semantics being
as if unwrapping the terminal were an implicit
conversion, then it would probably work correctly
in all cases. Unfortunately, I don't know how to
implement this.
