Really? We use gcc-3.3.3 and neer saw any such warnings?

IMHO it makes the code less readable.  And  as  mentioned  before:  I
didn't see such warnings, so I'd like to understand the cause of your

Boss, n.: According to the Oxford English Dictionary, in  the  Middle
Ages  the  words  "boss"  and "botch" were largely synonymous, except
that boss, in addition to meaning  "a  supervisor  of  workers"  also
meant "an ornamental stud."
