type-punning is what the current warning uses. All my code does is add
a second message that changes "will" to "may". So I think changing the
wording is a separate issue from my proposal.
I don't see any use of the word "pun" in the ISO C standard, so I see no
reason why we have to keep this wording. Did you want to suggest
something different? Maybe something using the word "cast" instead of
