What does "have no effect" mean in this case? In my mind, there are many
casts that have no effect - other than allowing the code to compile, which
is quite an important effect in itself (e.g. casting a 32-bit unsigned to a
pointer on your typical 32-bit system).
Are you seeking to warn for:
a = (int) b;
and similar things?
