Fortunately, no one is advocating the current formatting be removed or even altered, only that a less spammy alternative exist.

Always build with full warnings enabled.  Always clean up warnings as
they are introduced.  Always keep a warning free build.

Given the wide leeway the C and C++ standards give implementors in respect to what is warning-worthy, I think this is crazy. There are far more compilers in the world than just GCC, and trying to make a warning-free build on /every/ platform is just far too much torment-of-the-damned for far too little benefit.
