No. it is /assumed/ that they will evaluate to true,

Sorry - but when checking whether an unsigned type is larger or equals
zero, then this is a bug in the assertion and the compiler rightfully
complains about stupid code that could be written as "true" instead.

But maybe I misunderstand... Do you have an example?

And yes, the attached patch is of course good.
