Want? Probably never. Then again, if it is allowed, then it might happen. But I was more thinking of the case where somebody "accidentally" changes the signature this way, i.e. when they are new to ObjC. I could very well imagine that people coming from C/C++/Java/C#/etc. add/fix some code in this way, and use the compiler to tell them "thou shan't do this".
