I don't think you're really being realistic here. I mean,
_you_ don't ignore them, _I_ don't ignore them, but that's
still not the majority.
Besides that, there's no warning when GCC (2.95.2) is used,
which should cause some concern...
about MSVC, most people will simply leave it at warning
level 3, which also doesn't issue this conversion warning...
I never use MSVC at level 4, because it results in way too many
warning in MS's code, and also generates quite some redundant
warnings, such as "unreferenced inline function has been removed"
