    For those looking to see an example of the match expressions:

    This process of matching on opcode and doing a marginally different version of the same basic few operations on one of a set of registers is something that is _much_ easier to do when you're able to see all the opcodes and activities in a densely packed set of lines like this.

    (The start of the opcodes that I linked are not the best example of this, but they get more regular the further down the file you go. See )

    Beyond knowing that they exist, I haven't explored macros in rust, but I'm curious if they could be of help here. But using cargo fmt, and spreading each of those lines into 3-10 lines would be awful, and would definitely lead to me making mistakes and not noticing typos.
