Here's something pretty generic that gets the patterns right:

module THTest where

import Language.Haskell.TH
import Data.List
import Control.Monad

type Policy = Int

data Management = SimpleM Policy Policy Policy
  deriving Show

buildCP :: Name -> Int -> Int -> ExpQ
buildCP ctor nVars nth = do names <- replicateM nVars $ newName "pat"
                    let p1 = replaceAt nth WildP $ map VarP names
                    p2 = replaceAt nth (VarP $ names!!nth) $ replicate
nVars WildP
                return $ LamE [ConP ctor p1, ConP ctor p2] (ListE $
map VarE names)

replaceAt :: Int -> a -> [a] -> [a]
replaceAt pos x xs = let (first,_:rest) = splitAt pos xs
            in first ++ [x] ++ rest
-- for example:
doFst = $(buildCP 'SimpleM 3 0)

doFst  (SimpleM 1 2 3) (SimpleM 4 5 6) ==> [4,2,3]

(returns a list because it's easier to do. Modifying it to return
SimpleM left as an exercise :)
