> Also I think the technique you describe, which I have not seen in the wild,
might be too clever by half. Better to say in English in a comment, "This
macro is intended to cause no breaks.", no?
I tend to prefer actual code than comments. Comments can get out of date.
Code not (or well, it does, but you would notice more easily).
About the warning, I think I prefer having it. Disabling a warning if you
don't care is easy. But if the warning is not there, you can't add it :)
