I hope whatever happens takes into account that the string "-Wall"
only means something to some compilers, not every compiler in
the world.

I'm also not sure there is any point in trying to remove all warnings
since I've seen some compilers warn about some pretty stupid
things (I've even had code that couldn't be made warn-proof for
all the compilers I used because fixing a warning in one compiler
caused a new warning in the other :-). Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
