Previous attempts to get agreement on this have not been very successful one
man's meat proved another poison ;-)

I concluded that every author had to do his own thing for his own warnings - but
do his best to get rid of them 'locally' to his module without inflicting his
choice on everyone. Not all compiler have this fine-grained enough mechanism,
but then the info in the build info should allow users to add their own choice
of 'not-useful' warnings.

is a first go at this.
