Details and Options

- The pattern patt can also be a pattern that matches a list but does not itself have head List.
- With the default option setting OverlapsFalse, SequenceCases includes only sublists that do not overlap. With the setting OverlapsTrue, it includes sublists that overlap.
- With Overlaps->All, multiple sublists that match the same pattern are all included. With Overlaps->True, only the first such matching sublist at a given position is included.
