Actually just means if 13 <= k and k <= 16. In '<var> if' the <var> is
a dummy that always matches and acquires the value of the switch
Personally, this strengthens my feeling that importing stuff from very
different languages is going to cause confusion. I still like:
with 13 .. 16 then
(since that's what Pascal case statements can look like)
with any(13,16) then
Ignore the actual keyword used here; the main thing is that it would
_require_ a keyword!
Can't help feeling that:
with 10 or 12 then ...
is more readable than
with 10,12 the n ...
