The cast does need to get there somehow in C mode (in C++, we should
get an appropriate AST without that change).  However you do it, it
does need to cover the x+=1 case, though.

If you follow John's advice and do the promotion in
UsualUnaryConversions, it should pick up this case without extra code.
