[fpc-devel] Minor request with case else branches

Hi everyone,

Since the mandatory else section for case blocks isn't going anywhere, I 
would like to make a small request:

Whenever I come across a section of code in my own projects where "*else 
*;" is necessary, or any empty branch for that matter, I put a "{ Do 
nothing }" comment just to make it absolutely clear that the block is 
there deliberately and so there isn't any confusion with the syntax on 
first viewing; e.g:

*case *... *of*
     { Do nothing };

(I just hope the e-mail formatting doesn't remove the indentation!)

Just a minor thing, but I'm wondering if that's a sensible request for 
the compiler source.

Gareth aka. Kit
