I don't see the cast as an improvement but I won't object if somebody
changes it (a bit like one variable declaration per line which I think
is crap :)

I'll point out that this is application memory. If somebody were to
inadvertently modify the code to write through the non-const pointer
that would be a SEGV bug waiting for an application to pass read-only
memory. Unlikely, I know.
