the poor consequences of loplugin:constfields notwithstanding, i think 
the coverity warning is bogus or incomplete:  ScCellValue's both copy 
and move ctors are potentially throwing, so Entry's impl defined move 
ctor may indeed throw an exception, but will impl have a potentially 
throwing exception spec (whether or not Entry's

member is const).  and the coverity analysis doesnt show that such an 
exception isnt caught, but claims "If the exception is ever thrown, the 
program will crash."
