To be fair, that code is hilarious. All bug reports should have this
sense of humor, imo. :D

Yeah, that deserves a laugh(lang, 7). Or maybe a laugh(lang, 10). But
too much more than that, and it would become laughable. :-P

Heh :)  It's long-winded for what it's trying to say, though. But maybe I'm 
just being overly self-critical.

Since implicit fallthrough is going away, that's more a problem with a 
*missing* warning (in the second example) rather than an erroneous warning. 
So not using warnings doesn't solve that, it just makes all the rest of the 
warnings go missing, too.

Implicit fallthrough is going away, but Walter has decided to add 
it a special case, when the case is totally empty it's allowed. 
So both programs are correct (I don't love special cases, but 
here I think Walter doesn't want to cause too much D code 
disruption).

Oh, that's right, I forgot about that. Nevermind, then.
