I'm not sure what warning is “on by default”, as I always have at least
`-Wall` turned on all the time. But isn't every instance of a warning a
case of “a feature that is enabled by default but generates a warning”?
Name shadowing is one such. So is incomplete pattern matching.
What I mean, I guess, is that every warning could be an error if we so
desired, couldn't they? What's special about this one?
