in thread Smart match in p5

Blatent-plug: As brian d foy commented in his review, Perl 6 Now: The Core Ideas Illustrated with Perl 5 has a whole chapter on Switch and smart matching. Sadly it came out before xmath's amazing hack, but there are a few examples in there where smart matching saves a lot of typing and makes code a lot more clear. (Thankfully, there are 22 other chapters - as cool as smart matching is, vector operations and coroutines are much cooler, IMO). So go fork over your cash right a away - I worked harder for your cash than you did ;)
