const in C is an aid to help the programmer to keep track of data that
shouldn't be modified by a function. If you can add a const without
the compiler complaining, fine, if you can't don't, unless you are
ready to track down exactly where the data may and may not be
modified. The compiled program won't change, regardless of the const.
