Yes it is useful.
And I think I have found a way to support them within the 
is(T S == super) would become
auto f(alias T)
    static literal bool r = is(T S == super);
    // here alias S = (r ? SuperTupleOf(T) : ErrorType) is 
automatically declared.
    // where ErrorType is the value for which `!is(ErrorType)` is 

still the pattern matching part is going to be a pain to 
implement correctly.
Without the some limitations we have right now.
