  Most of them where hunted by the tool cppcheck -s, but others manually.
  I use this way to do this. Just translate all the C-style cast to
static_cast (to find them is the hard task) and compile,
  if the compiler complains, then it is a dynamic_cast or a
const_cast, or last resource reinterpret_cast.

  I'll do this to klipper, hopefully this weekend.
