Taking the geosoft style it should be "doSwitch" (Names representing
methods or functions must be verbs and written in mixed case starting
with lower case), as "switch" isnt possible.
The first option would be against rule 3 "Names representing types must
be in mixed case starting with upper case".

So I still prefer the rule "Names representing methods or functions must
be verbs and written in mixed case starting with lower case", "doSwitch"
and "doExport"; the other methode names I would leave untouched.
