Ivan -

What are the warnings?


T *p = X;


T *p;
p = X;

seems to be an uglification.

Does it really want

T *p(X);


In general, my attitude has been that we don't want to mess up the code very much or slow it down in critical places in order to avoid compiler warnings.  Things have gotten better recently, but historically a goal of zero compiler warnings across all possible compilers didn't seem practical.
