--- Comment #2 from Christopher Schultz <> ---
I haven't studied what the Java compiler does with switch(String) statements,
but I believe that numeric-based switch statements have two flavors: lookup vs
table. One of them is faster but is only possible under certain circumstances.
Introducing Strings likely complicates things further.

If we just need to convert a String value into a number, there's a data
structure pretty much purpose-built for that: a hash table. What if you
implement the lookup as HashMap<String,Integer>.get()?
