obviously not...

OK... did you look at this patch at all?

char * p = 0;

gives a warning on (some) 64bit platforms

assert(p != 0);

does not.

If only one person is qualified to comment on this...

Then perhaps someone should chime up and say that this person _must_
look at this patch.

Perhaps some formal patch posting guidelines should be written down.
And a maintainers file.
