Other thing which lint catched for me while cc was happy about (not just
gcc, bunch of other C compilators, on Sun, IRIX, True64 Unix, that
K&R bestie on HP-UX too), were write-only variables. I.E. variables,
which were initialized, but their value was actually never used.
This and hope lint would find something actually important
is reason why I _use_ lint to check my sources occassionally.
I just ignore the warnings, which are bogus :)
