  | Well, the proper way to get rid of them is to not use unsafe APIs ...

There is absolutely nothing unsafe about the strcpy() API.   It is
possible to misuse it, as it is possible to misuse just about
anything (does the OpenBSD linker warn about uses of write() or frwite()
because they might be dumping unitialised, or even potentially sensitive,
data to an unprotected file?).   It is absurd to assume that an API will
be misused, just because it sometimes is, or could be.
