That's pretty, but if you don't move Junction upward, you haven't
really addressed the question Autrijus is asking.  We're looking
for a simple type name that means none(Junction) for use as the
default type of the $x parameter to -> $x {...}.  Whatever we call
it, this type/class/role/subtype has to admit Item and Pair objects
but not Junctions.  (And if that's the wrong way to think about it,
please tell us why.)
