About half the time, your compiler gives you a warning and compiles it 
anyway.  And then either it misbehaves or doesn't compile on a different 

C++ compilers have been trying to tighten things up, but they also have 
various modes where they'll let non-conformant code sorta work (e.g. by 
disabling certain optimizations).

Or was that meant to be a rhetorical question?
