I'd rather remove the "default: return FAILED;" code than make the above 
change. If status_byte() ever would be changed into an inline function 
that returns an enum then my alternative will allow the compiler to 
verify whether all enum labels have been handled. No such check will be 
performed if the above patch would be applied.

Bart.
