Documenting the current way would certainly be good, as at the moment
one is left with the impression that something automatic exists when
it doesn't.

I think that this use of -Werror is a good one: given that every
project will have its list of warnings that it ignores, presumably one
does want to check before a release that no active warning flag is
generating any warnings.
