LOL, please excuse my non-caeffinated post at 8am :€

I have some AST that represent arithmetic computation.
I know that when I encouter a "a + b*c" node (where a,b,c can be expression
themselves), I can evaluate it using an optimised call instead
of chaining + and *.

Currently I do this by transforming my AST into another where a+b*c
is replaced by madd(a,b,c). Now, with your specialization of dispatch using
grammar instead of tag, I can check for a+b*c and dispacth to a special
instead of having a bloated trasnform next to that.
