Not trying to push more LISP into python or anything, but of course  
we could converge your method and the switch statement elegantly if  
only we could put whole suites into lamdbas rather than just single  
expressions :-)

{"case1": lamdba : some-suite-lambda... ,
  "case2": lambda : some-other-suite...
