They are ugly and I agree that they should only be applied if casting is
inappropriate. I have not gone through all of the warnings yet, but
hopefully there are not too many of them that cannot be fixed by casting
(or bug fixing- good catch, btw). Let's take a closer look after I've
got the patches in hand.
