:Good idea, perhaps someone could make a list of all the tools in base, and then

Well, too late for that one I guess, but let me set down some policy
for further cleanup commits.
* The cleanups are definite desired, keep them coming!
* No pre-commit approval is needed for general cleanups already
discussed (e.g. the 'removing (void) casts' and 'sprintf->snprintf,
strcpy->strlcpy' cleanups have been discussed and are desired).
* To ease the burden on post-reviews of the commits please commit only
*ONE* tool at a time and only one or two tools per day. This allows
us those doing the post-reviews to use the commit email to track
what has and has not been reviewed, deleting it out of their inbox
as they go.
Also, if mistakes are made we have time to correct them before the
rest of the commits go in with the same problem.
In particular, the sprintf->snprintf and strcpy->strlcpy work requires
Joerg and I (and anyone else doing post-reviews of these commits) to
actually bring up the whole source file and track down the variables
to make sure the correct size is being specified.
