The current switch/case test doesn't handle ... case labels like:

	switch (foo) {
	case bar ... baz:
		etc...
	}

Add a specific regex for that form and the default label.
Use the regex where a case label is tested.

Improve the missing break/fall-through test by only reporting
the first case label missing the break not every case label
where there isn't a preceding break/fall-through.

Show the line above the case label when reporting
the possible defect.

Please ignore, the patch is defective as
it has too many false positives.
