I forgot to mention that this series has a long tail. The first
ten patches (in addition to all pedantic warnings) removes 1246
warnings. The next 10 removes another 70 and the final 32 patches
only removes 55 warnings (the last 18 patches remove only one
warning each).

Hmm, so maybe I should only send the first few out? 

I will give it some thought (while waiting for some more comments).
