Hi John,

Yep - I'm not sure what to do about that. At the moment all we have in the
way of defaults is the language options DefaultFPContract value. Perhaps
it's reasonable to have a per-target DefaultFPContract value that can
override the language default. When it comes to explicitly referencing the
pragma I'm not sure what the best way to handle that is - As I understand
it we won't know how many functions it applies to (and thus whether it's a
good candidate as a global default) until we've already parsed them.

- Lang.
