As you know from reading the PEP, there are some deep unsolved 
controversies regarding the design of the switch statement, which your 
suggestion does not address. Syntactical issues such as how the keywords 
should be named are a minor issue compared to this.

Until those issues are resolved, the PEP is likely to remain on hold, 
and any suggestions as to naming and syntax will likely be regarded as a 
distraction to the main issue.
