What we lose is that 3000 more new warnings appear.  So if we make an
exception and convert all of the comments, I'm okay.

But otherwise, at least Eric, you, me (only now I admit), Thomas
expressed a preference for the other style; on the other side it's
Markus, Stefan, Conny and Alex, some of whom were okay with applying
maintainer discretion; John and rth wanted a third one but disagreed on
their second choice.  I appreciate your writing the patch, but I'm not
sure that's consensus...
