Meh. Why is it both perl and python both refuse to have switch

Dictionaries make a great substitute for switch statements:
# Not actually tested.
def printer(input):
  def a_func():
    print "You chose a!"
  def b_func():
    print "You chose b!"
  {"a":a_func, "b":b_func}[input]()

What's more, they're reusable-- heck, they can even be generated by or passed to other functions! I suppose now, someone will show us how to do it with lambdas.
