Good. Thanks. Actually I've seen that warning, but just didn't know what way to
choose.) So I've decided to leave the comment-based Fall-through fixup seeing
the rest of the file is using the older way. By doing so I've kept the locally
implemented coding style. Though I've heard the explicit attribute "fallthrough;"
utilization is a preferred way of marking combined case statements.
