The line is just a short form of

What you really should do is to avoid all that casting. Use proper types for your variables.

For example in your first post instead of

ModelData *m = (ModelData *) b;

you should use

ModelData *m = &b->modelData;

This way the compiller can help you. If you use casting you tell the compiler that you know better than him. But obviously you don't.
Sure, but that doesn't work the other way, getting from a ModelData * to a BSPModelData *, so I'd end up with two approaches in the same code base.
