Yes, as far as we are concerned, we as developers want a strict compiler, no
question about this. What I was suggesting is that it is not good to have a
strict compiler on a standard distribution installed by default because many
otherwise useful packages will not compile without fixing them up, the
maintainer might not be available, and the user might not know how to fix up
A strict compiler is good for the developer, nevertheless.
