[New-bugs-announce] [issue26411] Suggestion concerning compile-time warnings

New submission from Devyn Johnson:

I understand that compile-time warnings can typically be ignored. However, from my experience with programming (C STD-2011, for instance), "weird bugs", non-easily-replicable bugs, and odd behaviors disappear when warnings like this are fixed. I also understand that it will be time-consuming to fix each and every minor warning.

I have also noticed (in my own coding-projects) that fixing all warnings generated by -Wextra (and the many other warning flags) allows the compiler to more easily apply various optimizations.
