Without having an opinion on what should be the default, I find
-Wfatal-errors more idiomatic. Errors after the first are not robust
and I have no use case for "I need exactly 2 errors". Rather, if the
following errors might be useful, I'd remove the -Wfatal-errors and
less/scroll though the entire list.
