The warnings I see are from unused function parameters, which
are a little different in my mind than unused variables in
And unused parameters are not necessarily unclean code. In
many cases, they are useful for OO programming; you pass
an object's method all the data it might need, not knowing
that this particular object's method doesn't need all of it.

Which is a different matter from an unused parameter; I agree
with you that this isn't nice, and ought to be fixed.
Caveat: I don't count as an "abiword developer", I'm just a
guy who reads the list.
