I didn't mean to argue against providing them. In the case of locations, 
the occurrence of @$ can be computed. In the case of %parse-param, I was 
arguing that the user could pacify lint himself if he cares to.

However, Paul seems to have found nice lint conventions that solve this 
problem.  Thus, maybe it isn't necessary to go the route of trying to 
compute usages, remove declarations for unused variables, and leave the 
uncomputable usages in the hands of the user code.
