I could do that but prefer not to until we know for sure the warning is irrelevant. I can 
imagine clang doesn't throw this warning just for fun. Perhaps what we did was generally 
accepted before but is now considered risky ? I don't know. If we can avoid the warnings by 
small code modifications I'd prefer that approach.
