The obvious fix is to make each arm of the switch
its own predicate. I can do that, if you like.

BTW, why the hell is such a limit still in effect
in 2020, especially without an override flag?
Are they concerned about porting programs to PDP-11s?

Thanks, I suspect that's probably the best short term fix for this. (A better fix might be to get the
MLDS->Java code generator to do such splitting on switches past a certain size threshold, but
that may too much work for one instance of the problem.)

IIRC, that limit (and a few others) are pretty deeply baked into the design of the JVM and changing
them while preserving backwards compatibility would be non trivial.
