Follow-up Comment #5, bug #30652 (project octave):

That's what it looks like to me in the bug history as well. The point seemed
to be made that if the user wants it, the preference is in place to set that,
but it is not enabled by default. The user is expected to call

warning ("on", "backtrace")

in a personal or site octaverc file. Felipe's contribution is to want to
enable this setting by default with --traditional, similar to how other
variables are set to different defaults with --traditional. I'm not sure I
agree with that approach, I've made the argument to him on other bugs that
Octave is configurable and users should be able to set up octaverc files that
set defaults and keybindings, and not defer to --traditional to set even more
things to certain baked-in "braindead" defaults.
