I am a retired software developer. I retired at the end of 2003 and since then my computer programming activities have been for recreational purposes. I find Mathematica excellent for that.

I started using Mathematica in 1997 (Ver. 3). I am currently using Ver. 9. Although I have used Mathematica for all kinds of stuff, I use it mostly to pursue my long standing interest in Euclidean geometry, both in its classical Greek synthetic form and in its more modern analytical/transformational form.

comment Why doesn't repeated PatternSequence work with explicit pattern names?
The purpose of argument patterns on the lefthand side of a Set or SetDelayed is to allow the evaluator to determine which, if any, down-values can be used for further evaluation of the expression. It is not intended to be and can not be use as a kind macro preprocessor for modifying the argument sequence. So the answer to latest question is: no.
