p:input is the other thing that wraps bindings, and it allows a
'select' attribute.  I could go either way on whether to allow it on
xpath-context, since the 'test' attribute can do the necessary work,
but I guess I like the look of something such as

 <p:choose>

  <p:xpath-context select="//soap:body/*">
   . . .
  </p:xpath-context>
 
  <p:when test="@switch='1'>
   . . .
  </p:when>
 
  <p:when test="@switch='2'>
   . . .
  </p:when>
 
  <p:when test="@switch='3'>
   . . .
  </p:when>

  <p:otherwise>
   . . .
  </p:otherwise>
 </p:choose>

What do people think?
