Could someone explain this behaviour to me? I'd expect f[_Integer] to
match f[2] even after I set attribute Flat on f.


In[1]:= MatchQ[f[2],f[_]]

Out[1]= True

In[2]:= MatchQ[f[2],f[_Integer]]

Out[2]= True

In[3]:= SetAttributes[f,Flat]

In[4]:= MatchQ[f[2],f[_]]

Out[4]= True

In[5]:= MatchQ[f[2],f[_Integer]]

Out[5]= False
