Yes, both of those things makes total sense, I think.

`with-no-warnings' is a pretty blunt instrument; yes.  Stefan and Glenn
(in that thread) suggests the super-specific

      '((obsolete read-file-name-predicate ...))

form, which makes sense to me.

Would implementing this stuff be difficult, I wonder?  I've never had
much of a gander at the byte compilation stuff.
