as discussed those particular warnings are pretty useless. However some
of the other warnings such as the NULL to bool conversion and unused
function ones seem like they might be worth looking into. If you
determin warnings make sense to fix it'd be nice to change gcc to warn
I'm not sure why, but the list of warnings is really garbled which makes
it hard to read.
