Not sure exactly what Joe is referring to, but note that it should never be 
necessary to cast anything to "const void *" - the whole point of accepting 
"const void *" is that it means "accept pointers to anything, writable or not". 
  You don't need to cast to "void *" either unless the value you're casting was 
a pointer to const and you're casting away the "const".

Casts are bad!
