Once everything is warning free, -Werror *should* be enabled by default. That's 
how we'll keep everything warning free.

If everything were warning free, I don't see how people could be blocked by 
warnings that are unrelated to their current changes. This does happen today 
with implicit compilation, but it shouldn't happen in the bright shining future 
where there are no warnings. :-)

If there's some other phenomenon that could cause warnings to pop up 
spontaneously, unrelated to their current changes, I'd like to understand what 
that is.
