Hi Helio,

Yes, I agree, I have also noticed the large number of warnings due to non-const correct calls in the Nls message functions. I remember that you submitted a patch for this a while back for 3.4, but it was not checked in since it would introduce a binary incompatibility between minor versions. I think it should be ok to fix them now that we are on 3.5, but let's make sure Greg is ok with that.

gcc >= 4.4. now issues formal errors for some invalid conversions.
For now this patch is only one cpp, but fdo has some large amount of usage of
char* where should be const char*. Would be a good idea fix this "warning", even good for perfomance reason.
