If `A (x,y) and `B x have a link (as it seem in your
example) I would have define the type 

type aorB = [`A of int * int | `B of int]

and then your code become :

match x with
| .....
| #aorB as y -> let (i,j) = match y with `A v->v | `B u -> (u,0) in ...
| ......

by the way, you only need one as for the | `A ... | `B ... pattern
there is only one as, not two .

repeat tags is the best way IMHO (to avoid to correct the bugs in only
one of the two branch).
