Ok, how about
    "save-current-buffer is a better choice than save-excursion"

Hmm, indeed, maybe the message should simply say

   "Use with-current-buffer instead of save-excursion+set-buffer"

I only wish that the compiler warning was there 20 years ago so that
I wouldn't have to deal with that mess now.

Oh yes!


Hi Stefan,

pointing to other ways of delivering a task doesn't prove


is wrong.

Nonewithstanding there are better resp. lesser good coding styles.
Always welcome a discussion of code quality.

As far it concerns the compiler, please have a look how many warnings the last release issues when compiling.

In the result people will ignore that plenty of warnings.
Or might say: thats not worth a release if so many bugs are left.

That's going bad that way.

Whilst Emacs 24 alltogether seems coming forward considerably and is used in daily work here - thanks BTW.
