They are ugly and I agree that they should only be applied if casting is 
inappropriate.  I have not gone through all of the warnings yet, but 
hopefully there are not too many of them that cannot be fixed by casting 
(or bug fixing- good catch, btw).  Let's take a closer look after I've 
got the patches in hand.

Thanks for your help,
