I am an MSVC user, and this library I would actually use (mostly for
handling 3d triangles). I compile with warnings treated as errors, so
yes, any warnings would be "bad bad bad very bad". ;-)

I am rather busy currently, but if I get any time here soon I can try
running tests and such to help with fixing any warnings.
