The only other fast branching mechanism I know of is using a CALL <function
pointer). Where in the function pointer is the address where the function
resides (i.e., gCasePtr&(0)  = @FN Case0)

I've done this in a "tedd's CALL/CASE demo" and found no difference between
using a CASE statement as compared to using a function CALL. In 100,000
loops, both were 10 ticks.

If anyone wants the demo, I'll post it.
