I agree, and want `make bin` to show me warnings.  I might have been
taking the proposal too literally.

I know no reason why it shouldn't. Have you tried putting code that emits
errors or warnings into /lily and running make bin?

Make does show warnings on the terminal right now.
  make -s bin
lets me find them, which makes me very happy.

Only after the proposal is fully implemented, will a successful build stop showing me the warnings.

There's no intention of stopping make showing errors. There is an issue with warnings - make doc produces so many that the output is pretty much unreadable, and they've been ignored for a long time - so having warnings turned off by default is the preferred option. We should allow them to be turned back on, though.
