Explicitly casting the return type to char * would be a grave
programming mistake, and the coder would violate his own rules.
Even in the example below you will get a warning. Explicitly casting
path2 to char * is about as silly as the above.
char *dirname (const char *path)
char *path2 = path;
char *slash = strrchr (path2, '/');
*slash = '\0';
