I'm considering introducing a limit on #switch
cases of 2000 or so per
article, to address this issue. No doubt many templates will break,
but it's important to protect our servers, and we've always
discouraged this kind of #switch application.
In my opinion, we shall first check and list which templates will
break, suggesting to fix them as soon as possible. Because of so many
cases distincted, a 2000 cases #switch should be a overused template
inside its wiki. Then introducing the limit.
