It depends! If you know that the long will fit in a ubyte, by all means 
just use a cast. It's the fastest option. If you have no idea the value 
of the long, but it's *supposed* to fit into a ubyte, use to if you want 
an exception for those outside the range. And if you don't care, and 
just want a ubyte, use a cast.

But the compiler isn't going to accept ubyte(someLong).
