I'm sorry but I must respectfully disagree.  It seems *quite*
apparent, from the archives, that they won't listen to reason nor are
they going to budge one iota.  If Gareth and DJ couldn't sway them,
what chance do I have?  It is a waste of time to discuss this on the
gcc list, thus the only outlet is this list.  Seriously, though, you
have to admit that the warning is useless for the most part and
causes more harm then good?  So what's the harm in changing the level
of a trivial warning?  This is such an insignificant change that
would hardly warrant us being labeled a "rogue branch" which doesn't
comply with the gcc standards.  Gareth made some very good
suggestions on how this could be approached, and I concur with his
evaluation of the situation.
