Yes, I guess it's a tradeoff.  I'm just envisioning the scenario where someone is annoyed by this warning, changes a makefile to disable it, and then gets a build failure later when we remove the warning option.  This warning is just a temporary hack to alert people to an unimplemented feature.

Right.  I was wondering if we should have something like GCC's "notes" (maybe we already do?)  But, then you still have the problem that someone may want to turn it off, so I don't think that's the right thing, either.

It's fine to leave this as it is.  I think it's pretty unlikely that anyone is going to add -Wno-unsupported-debug-with-integrated-as to makefiles.
