"need to" is considerably different from "might". Size of an
int, assumptions that int=pointer, evaluation order of postfix
or http://tinyurl.com/263jayy if mailers between here & there

Just because facilities (macros, best-practices, etc) have been
established for some of these things doesn't mean a programmer
will reach for them if their code happens to work locally without
them. Trust me...I've encountered PLENTY of such code in
production before I left behind (for the most part) the world of C.
