I would be interested in hearing your feedback on the idea of making switch into a native, or any other improvements that we may want to make to it. (Yes, it is native in 2.7 beta, but I think only a few developers have tried it, and I have very little feedback from users on this change. In R3, it is not yet a native -- but should it be?)

The switch function is used quite frequently in programs, but it presents challenges to new users, due to it's non-evaluated case labels.

Let me know what you think. I'll leave the function as-is unless a good case is made for changes (no pun intended).
