So if we changed lint so that it "warned" you if your variable names
didn't all rhyme with each other, you'd update all of your code so
that they did?
The argument against lint isn't "dealing with warning messages is
bad". It's "some of lint's warnings are stupid".
Have you ever actually caught a bug in a program by having lint point
out to you that you weren't void-casting the result of a function?
