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.
