to clarify, having -Werror in upstream packages and getting enabled by default
when doing development is not short-sighted or idiotic at all, but in fact
makes a lot of sense for a lot of setups. shipping it enabled by default in a
release could be considered those things though.
a good compromise is what toolchain (and a few other) packages do: provide a
configure flag like --disable-werror.
