Don't assume that the user compiles his .el files, for starts, implement
the warnings on the interpreter too. Show a prompt or prominent notice
about the presence of the warnings (similar to what is shown when the
init files has errors). Show a special buffer with those warnings (and
only those) which are targeted to the user. Ignore files which are
likely authored by package writers (a good hint consists on containing a
`provide' or living on certain directories). Add detailed information
about how to fix the warning, assuming that the user is not proficient
with Elisp.
