Wright's matcher and various descendants were part of the Racket
standard library for many years (before I replaced them with a new
implementation).  To my knowledge, `get!' and `set!' patterns were
never used, and I received no objections nor heard of any problems
from dropping them in my new implementation.

I encourage everyone to ignore them.
