[squeak-dev] Question about #caseOf:otherwise:

Hi all!

Why isn't the following example possible?

aNumber caseOf: {
   [:n | n even] -> ['That is an even number.'].
   [:n | n odd] -> ['That is an odd number.'].

That is, why is the check "assoc key value = self" not configurable as "(x := assoc key cull: self) == true or: [x = self]"? :-)

... maybe it is a good thing that case-of statements in Smalltalk are not that powerful?
