switchshow's variable switchType

I can not seem to find the answer to this troublesome question. When performing a switchshow, one of the lines of output is the 'switchType'. I've noticed that Silkworm 12ks show up as switchType 10.1, while 3800s come back as 9.2. I'm guessing there is a nice translation table out there some where that says:

Just as a note the format is X.Y where X would note the model and Y being the hardware revision level for that model. Also off the top of my head 6.Y can also be a 2800. 2 and 6 are 2800's one being an OEM version and the other not, sorry that I can't remember which is which.

My switch shows up as a 17.2. Do you have a table entry for that one?
