The warnings for managed types have a different ID now. Hence, you can
already disable them separately if you want.
Please do not mix different things. I know that - and yes I read the bug
report you kindly provided a link to, where this was discussed. I did
not state I cannot disable them separately.
I want to stress that the compiler emits a warning on code that does not
have (and also cannot have) an error - even on other platforms and
targets. A warning is a level too high. A hint or maybe even a note is
more appropriate here:
E.g. The Lazarus/LCL code may not emit any warnings (we fix them) but we
don't care much about hints and notes. Because of this warning I have to
change a perfectly defined and flawless code.
