Was there an style aggrement made on removing all of these void's?
Yes, this has been discussed on submit@ a while ago.. Both Joerg
and Matt said they could be removed, their email can respectively
be found here:
and here:
Makes sense now after I've woken up completely.  Removing them also
adds better code consistency to the project as a whole.
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 
argument from e.g. usage(void).. I'll probably be able to avoid that
should be done by parsing the source files and just removing void 
casts. i'm not experienced, but maybe tendra or lint or something 
similar could be hacked to determine what is a cast and what not...
