This commit contains changes required for MuseScore to compile under MSVC with no warnings.

MuseScore is being compiled with the /W4 setting (warning level 4), which is similar to -wall -wextra on clang. This generates lots of warnings on MSVC, mainly for non-standard constructs and for constructs which might be bugs or might lead to bugs.

Most warnings are in the following categories:
- Name hiding: a variable hides a variable with the same name on a larger scope (or a field, or a function parameter). This can easily lead to bugs, and it is a best practice to avoid hiding variable names (see recommendation ES.12 in the C++ Core Guidelines by Stroustrop & Sutter ( : ES.12: Do not reuse names in nested scopes)
- Narrowing conversion: a numeric conversion results in loss of significant digits (for example, double -> float). The general recommendation is to use a cast to indicate this is designed behaviour.
- Unreachable code: in several instances, there is unreachable code. The unreachable code is commented out.
- (Potentially) uninitialized local variable. Just initialized the vars.
- foreach(,) -> for(:): this does not generate a warning per-se (only a few of these generate warnings due to name hiding), but changed in keeping with "MuseScore Coding Rules" (, which tells explicitly "Use C++11's "for" instead of Qt's "foreach":" ... "If you happen to be fixing some code and see a "foreach", please change that loop into a "for"."

Most changes are in the categories indicated above. The next listing shows detailed changes for files which are *not* of the aforementioned types.
