Remove Switch from the core distribution. Get it from CPAN now.

It's taken about 2 years, from the original idea on how to smoothly migrate modules out, getting agreement from Andreas and Jos in the buffet queue at YAPC::Europe 2008, a lot of "fun" re-ordering @INC, coding by Andreas, Jos, BinGOs and David Golden, and Jesse getting a 5.12.0 release out, but finally, now Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead.

Albeit only in blead. Not even in a dev release yet, let alone stable. But these things will come...
