I generally optimize for readability, rather than find/replace-ability. In
my opinion, it's distracting to see that expression copy/pasted so many
times in the same function. But ultimately this is a style preference, so
if you decide not to do it, I'll live.

The deriving part in the helper would likely get inlined and shared by the
compiler among all call-sites within a function. But yes, a macro would
work too.

Thanks Vijay,
