Have you ever tried passing that option through any kind of configure
mechanism on a Unix-like system ?
You can expect hilarious results.
- make needs quoting twice, as # is a comment, e.g., you need something
CFLAGS = '-Wno-\#warnings'
- I still haven't the faintest idea how you're supposed to pass it thru
a configure script without getting any hilarious errors.
Could it be considered having an alternative name for that option, like
-Wno-sharp-warnings, just so that people actually wanting to use it
can have a less painful life ?
