Well, your opinion is always welcome anyway :-)

Porting something to 10+ compilers is not always super easy.

And changing something that might break a regression is always something
I'm a bit reluctant to do. Yes, I've seen compilers where a reinterpret_cast
+ const_cast did not do what c-style cast would do. Don't ask me why. :-)

Anyway, let's see if it breaks anything.
