??? Unused argument warnings don't depend on how you call a function,
at least I have never seen a compiler where this is the case.

I expected that is because pointers to functions with a different
number of arguments were stored there, but that is more of an argument
_for_ making it an error, since this allowed the fact that the
code would crash with stdcall and all other calle-restores-stack calling
conventions to go by unnoticed, without even a warning.
