Thanks Sam.  

I didn't mention this, but I do use and prefer this for simple cases.
My actual use case has nested case statements, with many cases being
patterns/globs.  I attempted breaking it down, but it started looking
like overly abstracted object oriented code (where each class/method
does just one thing and you can't see the big picture).
