Exactly! This should be changed all over the code really, but right now
every now and then it gets cleaned up. Perhaps if I have time I'll write up
a shellscript to remove all (void) casts in the tree (where they should be
removed, of course) and provide a patch. The problem is the inconsistency in
the way they are casted.. I wouldn't want to risk also removing the (void)
argument from e.g. usage(void).. I'll probably be able to avoid that
