+This has nothing to do with flow analysis. 
+The problem is an optimization which we are currently not doing in 
+MCS: you're using switch on a constant - which means that the whole 
+switch block is effectively just the 'case 0' block. 
+From flow analysis's point of view, `x' is not definitely assigned at 
+`L2' because it cannot know that 'case 0' is the only case which may 
+ever happen.
