Is a cast really something that needs to be held back until the next
release? If so, I don't think anyone would object to temporarily
wrapping the header in #pragmas for VC++. It certainly is annoying to
have to do this stuff every time I want to include the header.

#pragma warning(push)
#pragma warning(disable:4244)

// stuff here

#pragma warning(pop)
