I think you're talking nonsense.  I've been happily using dict dispatch 
tables for years and, like Steven and presumably many others, find them 
dead easy to read.  Perhaps you should invest in a better optician 
and/or glasses?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
