Similarly, LaTeX does this:

    \ifcase\@eqcnt \def\reserved at a{& & &}\or \def\reserved at a{& &}%
     \or \def\reserved at a{&}\else
       \let\reserved at a\@empty
       \@latex at error{Too many columns in eqnarray environment}\@ehc\fi
     \reserved at a

I (and, I hope, Phil:-) could explain why this works but

  \ifcase \@eqncnt & & & \or   etc

does  not ... but that needs a whole mailing list all to itself:-).
