Don't worry about this. The purpose of the list is precisely to act as
humans and not as pre-configured bots. Whatever you can do right which
saves others' time is fine. What you can't easily do is left to others,
that's how we're the most efficient.

Initially when I quickly had a look at it I had the impression that it
would only process a sample fetch function but not the whole expression.
That disturbed me a little bit because I thought we had something to do
this. Now I had a second look after your comment and I think you're
right :-)

Yes I think it would be. Let's just place your switch() where you need it
and simply rely on sample_fetch_as_type() to do most of the job. I don't
see what could cause trouble there. Oh I'm seeing that it's apparently
what you did in this new version of the patch. I reviewed it very quickly
but at first glance it looks OK.

Not now, it looks OK as-is.

Just let me know if you want me to merge this one now or if you made some
extra changes since you posted.
