Doing a:

 SwIterator<SwClient,SwModify> aIter(aCallMod);
 for(SwClient* pClient = aIter.First(); pClient; pClient=aIter.Next())

should work: SwIterator is required to handle removal of Client gracefully (and
there is a unittest for that now). Also, when doing more than a plain
"Remove()", something like a SwIterator<SwFrm,SwModify> etc. takes care of most
of the casting for you internally.

So for now, SwIterator<> should help getting rid of the cast errors: IMHO
GetDepends() is an implementation detail that shouldnt be public anyway.
