Yeah, I agree, don't like that version anymore either. I have just
committed a first implementation of the type-based switch that uses
this syntax instead:

    case type string:

    case type count as c:

What do you think of that? The additional "type" makes it visually
clear what's it's about, and also helps the parser figure it out.
