yes.  and that includes width, and the *list* becomes the (almost only)
argument to PowerDecoder.

the width per PowerDecoder list element (a new namedtuple called Decoder?)
has to be added because it specifies the width of the Switch statement.

or, just... they're all done in parallel, and we assume that there are no
overlaps.  actually, hmmm, probably a cascade is safer, althought it would
introduce _another_ gate delay *sigh*.

i think we can get away with assuming that the list-of-matches are unique
even though they would be in separate switch statements.
