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).
