Hi Mike,

I wasn't referring to whether or not it was safe according to the  
language standard.  I was talking about whether or not this should be  
flagged as a potential bug.  I'm not arguing that we do so in this  
particular case, but the idea is that we want to be able to catch path- 
sensitive type violations.
