Offhand, no. But it doesn't look excessively complicated to make a
customised version of pairs.default. Hint: there's an if (i == j) {}
construct in the middle of everything, now if you were to split the
else clause into i<j and i>j and do something with text(...) in the
former case (like it already happens for i==j).
