So it comes down to either:

A. As things are - every ballsy app developer has to have this piece
of code laying around:
    import warnings


B. we render warnings useless in our every day python lives except for
package buildbots that remember to run with -w (or whatever).

I would like a demographic on this, but I'm sure that either way
muting warnings will be a devastating blow to the spread of
information about what's new/old in python.
