Just curious, what compilation phase does this check run in? Could we
gain a macro like FALLTHRU or even lowercase 'fallthru' that expanded to
whatever the compiler wants to see and then there would only be "one
way" to do this? It would alleviate the above concerns, but maybe I'm
rehashing something that's already been proposed and rejected.

Of course, I'm happy to merge any of these patches that tweak things so
no worries either way.
