Code Inspection: 'match' can be replaced with 'switch' statement

Reports the match expressions that can be replaced with switch statements.

Note that match expressions use strict type comparison, while switch statements rely on loose comparison. As a result, the expression semantics may change after replacement.

See match ( and switch ( for details.
