The reason why people keep coming back to a series of comparisons (actually more general: a series of branch on tests) is that a series of comparisons is behaviorally equivalent to a switch. Written in appropriate style it's obvious that it is intended to have the effect of a switch. The code implementing a case is given "naturally" after mentioning the case. Given all that, it seems unnecessary to add new syntax.
Starting from that summary of the thread, what are you trying to argue?
only that all the discussion about series of comparisons don’t paint the full picture; that the Case class isn’t enough.
