I think one of the problems is that developers are eager for v2.1.*
to start, so they can _really_ start to trash the code :-)

Dejan Ilic (aka "a bug's worst nightmare") whipped me into shape - I now
always make sure every file can be compiled correctly using every
available option. Others should take up this philosophy too. It doesn't
prevent run-time errors, but it does prevent silly typos.
