If you think that a C 'case' statement handling a WIMP reason is encoded as a string of comparisons, you're way off. Why exactly do you think this is a "bottleneck" anyway? Did you deliberately pick one of the MOST EFFICIENT dispatchers as your target for pointlessly changing?

Which is close enough to what it does do. List the messages it wants to receive in the init call and mask reasons in the poll call. The actual business of how it hops to the handler is insignificant.
