You are bringing the issue from a techinical point of view into a matter of
personal taste. You probably don't care about them, others might find
unreasonable to silently break that ISO C compliant code. Fine. I was just
asking if, from a technical point of view, that overhead is going to show up in
usual (non micro) benchmarks or not.
