Casting a function pointer to a void * is not guaranteed to yield a  
pointer with the same address, nor does casting it back.  The  
stupidity was the (imposed?) use void * where a pointer to function  
was required.

The comment was a note from me to me.  Go ahead and remove it; it's  
unlikely I'll ever get around to fixing it.  Can't say anything about  
any other comments you don't like and choose to delete unilaterally.
