[e-lang] ":Foo" pattern syntax

E-on-Java accepts ":Foo" as a pattern, equivalent to "_ :Foo". E-on- 
CL does not.

Is this syntax archaic or current; i.e. should I add it to E-on-CL or  
edit the code to not use it?

(FWIW, I find it slightly ugly.)

Separate issue: E-on-Java is inconsistent: e`a =~ :b` is accepted,  
but epatt`:b` is not.
