there is update of libHx from Jan Engelhardt



It is simpler (does not need __builtin_choose_expr which can be problematic
on some old GCC where I have noticed some bug report exists).
On the other hand error message would not be so self explanatory.

The trick with +0 is clever and newer C standard allows it even for void*.

I have tried something similar to overcome comma operator not allowed
in initializers. I put my previous attempt there, because there can
be place to use that for some non pointers casting


This madness is equivalent to (new_type) but allows to place test [1-2*!!test]
onto [1] position to cause build time error.

Best wishes,
