I understand some people on this list ran code that kept giving them
warnings until they were "warning-blind" so I'd like to know why they
didn't run python with "-W ignore" and enjoyed a warning-less world of

Either that or I'd rather these
ultimate-and-bug-less-that-run-with-special-options programmers to add
the ignore warnings stuff in their code, that way when their code
magically breaks upon a language change, there's proof that the real
problem was their ego.

If you feel it's hard to ignore warnings, then make it easier, don't
break the system because it's a good one that's saved me and many
others from doing silly things we would have never noticed until it
was too late.
