If we have a log file, you can do neat stuff like
  grep "[wW]arning" doc-build.log
or even
  grep "[wW]arning" make-build.log | wc && if `cut -f 1 -` != 0;
then echo "reject patch for adding warnings"; fi;

if all that junk is somewhere in your terminal buffer, then you're

Look, we lose NOTHING by saving stuff to a file.  If somebody
doesn't want to look at it, they don't need to.  If somebody
*does* want to look at it, it's there.  If somebody only realizes
that they wanted to look at something an hour after a build, it's
still there.

Besides, if you want that stuff in your terminal buffer, just go
ahead and do
  make VERBOSE=1
It's right there in the second point of the proposal.
