[Metalua-list] Vararg in match

I never thought about reusing the vararg on the right-hand side of a match
case, but it makes sense indeed.

For now, the simplest way to do that is to use "==" on the left-hand side,
which forces to match against several patterns simultaneously:

local foo = function(ast)
   match ast with
   | `Id { ... } == x -> print(select("#", unpack(x))) -- or rather
   | _ -> print("2")
