:I've seen a number of patches lately which remove void casts.  Could you
:explain (very briefly) where this momentum is coming from?  Is it gcc,
:for example, or elsewhere?

    They are mostly eyesores that do not improve the readability of the
    code or serve any compile-time purpose.

    It's similar to the silly 'blank line after open-brace of procedure if
    no local variables declared' eyesore.
