I would assume that the most David would be expected to do is add the
NO_WERROR=1 to the appropriate file.  He should not have to go through
the entire source tree and fix all new warning messages in the entire

I agree with this.  Given the amount of effort involved for gcc3, he
does not seem to asking for much.  He is actively working on it, and
making commits.  Increasing the ERROR-level in makefiles is not
something which is urgent, and it seems a reasonable courtesy to
David to hold off on that for a few weeks.

Hmm.  I guess a question to David is: "what is the target-date for
switching current over to gcc3?".  I've been assuming that is pretty
close to happening...
