    I know that because I've implemented it (without Haskell and without lazy
    evaluation, the specification should not limit the choice of implementation
    languages), but this still does not reply the initial question; how are
    matches expected to be ordered in the result set?

    Of course I could rewrite everything with Haskell or some other FP language,
    including in Lisp with lambda-calculus. This will not give any reply to the
    initial question, even though it will give a strong mathematical proof of
    the concept (a proof verified by the language itself).
