    ITYM "hides". You've just lost anything resembling typechecking of
    arguments; it might be wrong in the current form, but at least we
    get a reminder of possible problems.

    With __force you've lost _all_ warnings - anything goes. NAK. At the
    very least, figure out what type should the argument be and add a
    (non-force) cast to that before forcing it.
