I had a concise, readable, maintainable bit of C code that generated about 9 "possibly incorrect assignment" warnings, because it used assignments inside an if(). Adding parentheses made it ugly, and breaking the input out of the if would have been tricky and would not have increased the quality of the code in my opinion at the time (this was many, many years ago, and many lines of code have passed under the bridge since then, so my deicision now may be different if I still had the code). I didn't want to turn off the "possibly incorrect assignment", and the compiler (Borland Turbo C) didn't have selective warning pragmas that I could wrap the code in. So I left it as it was, and documented that the only warnings generated are this specific group.
