    i'd actually thought of that but, as with previous patches of mine,
    it's a trade-off -- the more i try to do at once, the more chance
    there is of having the patch rejected for some sort of

    as you may have noticed, i try to write scripts to automate a lot of
    this. this last patch definitely needed more manual work than
    previous patches so i was loathe to try to push the envelope -- i
    wanted to concentrate on the superfluous casts this time, and leave
    other issues for future, well-defined patches.
