1442                 if (once) return;		/* Avoid log file DDoS */

That's some of my new code.

In this case, I'm switching on a enum and have handled all the cases so the 
default "can't happen".

How do I get the compiler to tell me if I missed an option on a switch 

Of course, the data might get mashed, so the other question is:
  How do I get coverty to not complain about this code?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
