OK. I withdraw the proposal. All I know is what I read in the
readily available docs (info/man). The -Wconversion doc says
nothing about intended use. I just knew that it would help
identify value-modifying conversions (per your NewWconversion page).
So, I'll use -Wconversion iff GCC >= 4.3. Thank you. -Bruce
