The point is that it also warns about lots of unrelated global shadows.
Not being able to use variable names like "version" (and tons of others)
is ... strange. We have lots of global names, and some are arch dependend.
There is no way to avoid this warnings besides trial and error - and that is

P.S.: of course it can't know which global shadows it should or should not
warn about. Has any global shadow been a real bug yet?
