With DEV300_m65 unused methods reduces to 886 as hwpfilter drops out of the list.

Some other work ongoing on removing permanent timers which are constantly triggering when we should otherwise be idle. 3.2 will have the clipboard polling removed which makes the bare frame idle without wakeups, while patches for making math idle have been applied for 3.3. The spell checking loop in impress and draw never ends at the moment, patch available to fix that, as well as fix the graphic and ole cache manager loops to not run if unnecessary. I’ve no fixes for the more complicated writer and calc idle loops yet however.

strict aliasing
Good bit of progress on making OOo strict aliasing safe as well.

Played around with cppcheck as well, mostly discovered missing checks in various workbench tools and build-time tools, but a few good catches on stl iterators in main-line code, and very good on new[]/new vs delete/delete[]. A few false STL positives as well, but upstream is responsive to bug reports, so next version will give a better set.
