            Nice work. I might run cppcheck on it tonight, alongside with providing patches to anything I find myself able to fix.

              How is reducing the barrier to entry by producng good and compliant code a waste of time? It'd prevent future bugs too I bet, simply because it makes more sense.
              WEEEEEEEE!

                Also, fixing warnings usually fixes bugs you don't even know about. The kind of bug your find in some esoteric contexts.
