Great, I'll look at the patch in a moment.  Fixing warnings is a great way to
get your hands dirty on the code, learning how it works.

That's what I do as well.  As long as I don't introduce any more breakages,
I'm happy.

It'd be nice if you used gcc 3.3, as it outputs many more warnings.  Using
anything before this, might output warnings that the script doesn't check for,
and might not output warnings that are actual problems.

It's not super important; we can do it up ourselves.  Any patches you send,
you'll get credit for, however.
