I don't agree completely.  There are a lot of warnings in GCC that are
false alarms and don't matter.  Also, for example, it's not always
possible to make sure that everything compiles on all platforms and
with all ports.  I don't think that for instance, compilability for
MS-Windows should hold up development.
