Within reason.  We don't want to obfuscate the code just to shut up an
overly-paranoid compiler.  And for compilers that have multiple levels
of paranoia, we're mostly concerned with warnings that occur at the
default level, not warnings that only occur at higher levels.  I've
looked (briefly) at the warnings you're getting on Windows and in my
opinion most of them are not worth fixing.  If I'm interpreting the
options correctly, we're compiling with warning level 3 -- isn't 2 the
default?  If so, we should probably change it so that people aren't
unduly concerned.  There are likewise some warnings that occur when
using gcc -Wall that aren't worth fixing, but only developers are
expected to use gcc -Wall (and even they don't always!).
