FWIW I'm with Jacque on this one. Not only are exclusive blocks far more common in practice, they're also explicit - you can see the work "BREAK" right at the end of the case block.

If a template doesn't include that explicit guidance, I fear for the experience of new users confused by how their code flows (not to mention old-timers who either forget to add "BREAK" or wonder why it isn't put there with the rest of the supplied code).

On the other hand, it would prevent the common (mostly newbie?) mistake where you forget to break and the switch statements run amok. I reported a bug back in the MetaCard days and was gently reminded that I was an idio... um... in error.

Ooooh... Ah, but then someone will complain about occassionally having to delete the break.

How about every time I write a "case" statement inside a switch construct, the editor adds a blank line and then "break"?
