My wording is unclear, let me rephrase:
Since I believe that *all* users who care about warnings will *want* to disable
these in their code anyway, I think the most user-friendly approach is to
permanently disable them in the library header.
(Note the added "want")

I'm not sure whether that applies to the majority of the users. Anyway, as you
have pointed out: The permanent warning suppression might well be avoidable,
which would render this discussion obsolete.
