Actually, I think I'd prefer a "case 0:" instead of the "default:",
because that would assert that we don't use a 0 for op or field numbers.

As at least some people seem to care, I suggest we bundle up
this and the other clang warning you just resent the patch for
with whatever else we may come up with for the next merge window
and send a pull request to Jens then.
In case we forget, please send a friendly reminder.
