`nth-value` is what jvm people would call a `tableswitch`, and is a common optimization of the c-style switch. the other `switch` proposal is unusual by c standards, but is however a lot closer to what ecmascript calls a `switch`, and given the user community overlap, is probably going to win the name if both proposals are going to be seriously considered.

at any rate, `nth-value`/`tableswitch` seems both extremely useful and relatively easy to do, so i hope there's implementer interest.
