It is GNU project policy that we do NOT make our programs
ugly in the name of having zero warnings in with -Wall.
Such a goal is misguided.

-Wall is too fussy.  It warns about constructs that are
entirely valid and reasonable to use.  I designed it to be
the most extreme pedant possible.  We should not let the
existence of that option dictate to us what is good C code.
