As long as we take it out for 3.7.0 I'll be happy.  At that point it can be enabled by whichever flag we have that says 
emit all warnings instead of silently suppressing them.

This reminds me of pip with it's 20 lines of ssl and sudo warnings -- it makes it nearly unusable as I have to search 
and search to find the two lines somewhere in the middle that I'm interested in.
