Once school of thought says all warnings should be treated as a bug,
and that we should not allow code into SVN that has warnings. So
instead of doing svn checkout and turning pedantic on, you should do
checkout and turn pedantic *off* if you are disinclined to use them.
If you are doing dev work and you have unused vars etc then just turn
off pedantic while developing, then turn them on again for a final
build before committing,

If warnings arise on different compilers etc we should treat these as
bugs too.  I thought at one stage pedantic was turned off in SVN -
maybe one of us (me turned it on and committed again without
realising. Ideally the warnings in WFS plugin can be resolved and we
can remove that warning. In summary, I prefer to keep pedantic on...

...what do others think?
