I think it's a tad late for this.  (First of all, a switch...case
expression isn't even at issue for PEP 308; that should be reserved for
antoher PEP.)

The voting process has been confused enough as it is.  Amending it at
this late date to add another option doesn't seem like a very good idea
at all.  (For one thing, how many people who have already voted are
going to bother scrutinizing updates to the voting process?)
