Presumably these warnings tell me something about the
forward-compatiblity, performance, or otherwise functional aspects of my
program.  I do not count the documentation there.  It's not that I don't
pay attention to it, but I don't necessarily do simultaneously when
making my program functionally correct.  This is why we one has
different checkers, and why different checkers check different things.

In the byte-compilation check, this is a hack.  Else we may just as well
add spell-checking to the byte-compiler.
