FWIW, I was surprised and annoyed by that warning. Not to the level of
complaining on public, but thinking that it is... less than elegant to
automatically modify the init files and some time later to pester the
user with warnings about that same modification he was forced to accept.

Not to mention the noise it creates for those of us that occasionally
work with multiple Emacs versions and the same init files.
