Yes, we can agree to disagree. My opinion is that we are talking past each other and you are countering a position I don't hold. Update You are correct that I did make a typo s/value/integer/ - it definately does change the meaning of the sentence.</Update>

My example was to illustrate that a simple question such as "is the integer in this range" can't be answered with a single key in the dispatch table. This immediately followed my first assertion that the problem was each condition had to be an exact key. It was a simple example that illustrated the point.

I didn't bother moving on to more complex examples because I believe I had already made my point and because I referenced Roy Johnson's great tutorial - Implementing Dispatch Tables which covers these difficult cases and some work arounds.
