It seems like there's an impasse here, and from what I can tell the
core is around whether to fix everything at once, or one thing at a

I think it's awesome that all three of you are working on this, and I
don't want to get in the way.  But, as a tie-breaker vote, I'm going
to err on the side of doing as many issues at once as possible.  I'm
currently the major contributor to the nine branch, as well as to a
number of topic branches based on nine, so it benefits me to get any
large-scale merge conflicts over and done with quickly.  If we stretch
out the remaining disabled warnings into a pull request each, it will
be a few months at least until we're done, and that sounds like a lot
of pain.

I think Pierre's got a nice system put together to handle the merge to
nine.  So if it's OK with Vladimir, I think Pierre should proceed to
apply and land his changes, with Vladimir's review.

Sound good?/
