I just thought that removing bogus warnings from sparse helps us focus
on real issues when using it. Currently sparse emits too many messages
and some (many?) of them might be removed trivially (or by adding bit of
ugliness. :( )

BTW, I didn't get what you mean about "some smarts". Could you explain
them little more?

Thanks.
