Okay, point taken. But why do you use old-style casts instead of the
static_cast<>s you used before ?
This will make it difficult to compile the "included"-Variant using "-
Wold-style-cast". I'm quite surprised that you use those casts at all.
This is worrying me as "modern" casts tend to prevent subtle bugs.
