I agree.  Perhaps there had already been something like this planned for a
future patch release of Circle?  It is very awkward to have a switch with
that size.  If you want to add something inbetween two cases you have to
read through all of nanny just to be sure that you are adding it correctly.
If all the different cases had their code in their own functions that simply
returned either an int or a true/false depending on the result, nanny would
all of a sudden be a little bit prettier, and a lot easier to handle.

Go ahead. Shoot me down. Destroy my dreams in the wink of an eye. ;)
