Any chance we can fix/annotate them all?

Is there a web page that describes the /* coverity(mumble) */ stuff?
Can I add a comment in there too, like:
  /* coverity(mumble)   we handle all the cases */
Something like that might help somebody understand what's going on.

Thanks.  No mail yet.  I guess I'll have to go poke around.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
