It should've been named Pattern A1119a

The reason for duplicating some of the patterns is because, for example,
in the pattern above, a & b may either be in the goal, but both are not
guaranteed to be in the dragon.

The whole point of adding explicit anchors is that the anchors are only
matched against the goal, so we'd miss half of the good matches for this
pattern if we don't duplicate it with both a & b as anchors.

(I'm looking at the compile errors for trevor_3_11.1a now...)
