That's what I had expected without thinking too much about it.  But I
agree that we would end with something different.

Sounds good!

Though, just changing them would break existing code (the current
versions are about boolean values, the pcase versions would be about
pattern matching).

For example, now

  (if-let ((a (ignore))) a 17)       ==> 17,


  (pcase-if-let ((a (ignore))) a 17) ==> nil.
