There's a difference.  The spurious compiler warning is a side effect
of the limitation of code-flow-analysis plus not bloating my compiler
with crap --- very fundamental facts of life.  The bogosity of print0
is "by design" -- a deliberately and unnecessarily constructed
stupidity that adds bloat to certain tools because someone or other
got a little overexcited back in 1988 when they realized that 0
doesn't occur in unix filenames.
