No problem; I should have mentioned it before.

Fair enough.

Now that gcc-4.6 has nicely parseable warnings, I wonder if buildds
could grep for the string '[-W' so package maintainers could subscribe
using a new PTS keyword to learn when their supposedly warning-free
package acquires a warning.

Roger et al, does that sound interesting to you?  Is buildd the place
to implement this sort of thing?

Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
