I'm honestly not sure. I like the idea of making *Warnings* more
user-friendly, because that seems like a good step towards
modernization. However, I do think that there shouldn't be any easily
accessible way to turn off this one particular warning, since
otherwise I can guarantee a lot of people are going to use it instead
of fixing the (important) problem.

Maybe as a compromise there could be a way to mark a warning so that a
disable button isn't shown for it?
