This worked on slow machines, but now on faster machines quickly flashing
messages are hardly readable.

This can become irritating for loading files with nested dependencies
when this delay occurs after loading every of them.

But how about using already existing function `display-warning'?

For example:

 "Source file file.el is newer than compiled file.elc"

It has options to control the severity level and suppressed warning types.
