For those interested, here's the kind of things you could do, at least
on older ARM architectures.
# Jump-table dispatch.
cmp r0, #42
addls pc, pc, r0, lsl #2
# Load first byte of 8-byte element from array at r1 indexed by r2.
ldrb r0, [r1, r2, lsl #3]
I'd have thought PowerPC has some similarities?
