[PEAK] Dispatching without generic functions.

I have a situation where I am trying to figure out how one would add
dispatches on a dispatch.generic function. Using the regular @drink.when
and such proves easy enough and I thing I understand how to utilize the
befores and afters.
In a system built around components it might not be possible to use
generic functions since the target method that needs the functionality
may well be changed in the game.
@drink.when("n is 1")
print 'You choose 1'
@drink.when("n is 2")
print 'You choose 2'
print 'You choose 3'
How would this last method be added to drink? The rule that should be
passed can easily be stored in a dictionary or list or tuple or whatever
but I don't know how to make it work.
What I am trying to do may well be an ugly hack but I feel that it is
either that or I scratch the idea of using dispatch all together since
it won't be flexible at all in a component driven system if you can't do
something like it.
