I agree 100% with this. Lambda statements can be very useful, I
think. Many times I want to do different things in a for_each
loop based on the value being operated upon. I don't want to
write a big if-else tree if a switch will execute more

I'm very, very pleased to hear that the Lambda/Phoenix teams
are working together. This helps assuage the concerns I expressed
