Which is why, when I gave a bunch of novice programmers instruction about how to maintain code, I said "the standard is (a) always turn warnings to max and (b) always fix or otherwise understand *every* warning".

We had a bunch of warnings we couldn't get rid of, hence it didn't say "fix all warnings", but "explain it away" is just as effective, if less satisfying.
