We really need a volunteer to fix the regression system so that developers can
actually see warnings -- be aware that when things compile with warnings there
is NO indication in the regression system. So rather than just fix the one
problem, we need someone to work on the general problem so we can start
tracking warnings as an issue before release rather than after...
