My personal opinion is, that there should not be any warning in the
compiler output, for just one simple reason:
If there are always 5 warnings in my project, that are harmless and can be
ignored, and suddenly there is a sixth one (perhaps not so harmless), I can
easily overlook this new warning.
But if there are always 0 warnings, and then a new one, it's easy to detect
it (warnings get coloured in emacs...).
When I know, that a warning is harmless, I put a
#pragma GCC diagnostic ignored "-W..."
in the file.
