One more warning in interval.hpp, the enum BoundedTypes last value has
an inappropriate trailing ','. Not sure why this only showed up on 1 of
6 CodeWarrior target compilations.

I should clarify that I still get compilation errors/warnings using
split_interval_map::operator+=, but rather I'm using the add method.
