I thought of a better way. The mill supports vector reducing operations like all and any. I don’t know the syntax for them, but perhaps the between operation could take a number and a vector and tell you if the number is in that range. for example:

F("bar") %0;
    con     (v(4ul, 7ul))         %1,  // whatever syntax to build a vector
    betw    (b1 %0, b0 %1)        %2;  // true if 4 <= x && x <= 7

Since the value is a vector, it can use only one functional unit to calculate if x is within the range. That would make switches ranges trivial to optimize.
