That's not the point. Why on earth should a programmer *not* get as much help as possible
from a programming language/compiler? That's the genuine purpose of a programming language.
Why stick with flaws if they are avoidable?
*If* the issue Timothy reported can be avoided why *not* doing it?
It would help avoiding many problems and reduce testing time.
Although I have not such a strong feeling about it I would still appreciate the suggested addition.
It would add a function for safer programming without drawbacks (except the coding effort of course).
Though I don't know whether it can be implemented easily (if at all).
