Damn C++ that doesn't allow the conversion from void* to type*. We
have some options:

1) Use "-fpermissive" flag and live with the warning (there doesn't
seem to be an option to turn it off in gcc).
2) Patch eina to provide a c++ version of the macro. This would mean
using typeof() though, which is a gcc feature. Looking at how it's
implemented, it would be very simple, just casting to typeof(ptr)
instead of to void*.
3) Use a different version of the macro in WebKit, like you did.
4) Don't do this conversion from c to c++. Ryuan, was this the only
issue of converting from C to C++?

I like option 2. I made a simple patch to eina that fixes it if we are using
C++, but I didn't committed it yet. I'd like to hear opinions from
