Interesting. The compiler is right that this _should_ never happen, but
I think the patch is quite reasonable to be defensive in case the enum
happens to get a value outside of its acceptable range (which is
probably undefined behavior, but...).

I wonder if:

  if ((int)command < ARRAY_SIZE(todo_command_strings))

silences the warning (I suppose size_t is probably an even better type,
though obviously it does not matter in practice).
