            Bug ID: 83295
          Assignee: chris at chris-wilson.co.uk
           Summary: difference of non negative enums is never negative
        QA Contact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: sixtysix at inwind.it
          Hardware: Other
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: general
           Product: cairo

Gcc treats enum with non negative values as unsigned,
so using the difference in a comparison function is


for example adding a 

assert (a->type - b->type >= 0);

gcc prints

src/cairo-polygon-intersect.c|795 col 15| warning: comparison of unsigned
expression >= 0 is always true [-Wtype-limits]
      assert (a->type - b->type >= 0);

this means that three events (START, STOP, INTERSECTION) in the same
place will be potentially each one after each other, making difficult
to understand whether equally located STOP/INTER/START events should be
really processed in that order or not.
