common code patterns

Using a break in every case is 95%+ of my switch usage. Also the editor
should not do this if there is a case in the immediately preceding
non-blank/non-comment line. Doing this and J's suggestion would save me lots
of typing.

Ooooh... Ah, but then someone will complain about occassionally having to
delete the break.
