Yeah. Actually, we can even take the switch and for out of the equation,
and the code can be rewritten as follows:

ec_accel_channels[X].scan_index = Y;
ec_accel_channels[Y].scan_index = X;
ec_accel_channels[Z].scan_index = Z;

if (state->sensor_num == MOTIONSENSE_LOC_LID)
	state->sign[X] = state->sign[Z] = -1;
else
	state->sign[X] = state->sign[Y] = state->sign[Z] = 1;

We've been waiting 5 months for Gwendal. :/
