Well, to be honest, GCC has been very good at adding new warnings to
the recent releases, and I think we should be fine with just the
warnings, even if independently added.

Deprecating them is a different matter, but still, developers are
getting more and more intolerant to warnings, or even using -Werror,
on many projects.

I'm not worried about that...
