In my personal experience, most times a warning comes it, the
code *is* broken (but *might* work in most situations).
So, developers should always enable it and think ten times
if some warning is acceptable.

But: you all conviced me. These flags should be controlled by the 
distro buildsystem, not the individual package. Developers just
should take care that there're no preventable warnings.
