Do not trust datasheet code examples. Some are too simple (bank
selection for example), others are just wrong and/or inappropriate
Copy/Pastes from other PIC datasheets

You can use that (whatever it means), but not BANKSEL ? !! 8-)

To be honest, scatterings of

BCx STATUS,RP0, with or without BCx STATUS,RP1

through code looks really untidy and is distracting and tiring to read.
Plus it's more typing and a lot easier to make a mistake with. There
are so many code faults that can be traced back to banking
