Don't forget that switch logic falls through from case to case if
there is no "break" statement; so
[put whatEver into switchExpression]
case caseValue = switchExpression
case caseCondition = true
[optional default logic]

You are combining two forms of the switch statement. By designating
mainChoice as the switch, the value of each case is compared to
case "Go to script object"
case "This menu script"
put the long id of me into scriptObject
case "Library 1"
case "Library 2"
case "Library n"
put the name of stack secondChoice into scriptObject
edit the script of stack "libOPN_Unsorted"
This assumes a finite number of libraries with known names.
