C programs may end up generating extra warnings, but C++ programs may
start to fail to compile.

I guess the question is what bugs we expect to uncover by eliciting
additional compiler warnings and errors. If we expect these are being
mis-used, it would be a good thing. However, if we just end up breaking
a lot of otherwise correct code, it doesn't seem like a good plan.
