Yes, this is the right thing to do, consistent with our "tradition" of
working round the foibles of compilers.

I'd just like to express a rant here about gcc - the highly variable
variables that it has decided that it can't check to see if they contain
*printf formatting code are:

static const char* const ident_too_long = "Identifier too long";

and

    static const char* const number_too_long = "Number too long";


Like those are going to change ever. :-(

Here endeth the minor rant about gcc.
