It's not necessary, which is why my question was posed: as a clue. By
asking GSoC applicants to think about how the logic can be
table-driven, it is hoped that they will arrive at the realization
that it is okay to pass in more parameters than placeholders. With
that idea in mind, the code can be simplified whether table-driven or

(I suspect Michael had this in mind when he composed this GSoC
microproject and asked students to consider if it would make sense to
make the code table-driven.)
