... in fact, they're off by default.

That's no argument against either one. (I agree that some of the default warnings are questionable, but that's a different discussion.) Plenty of things have the wrong defaults: Unix crypt, C's string handling, Perl 5 optimizing its defaults for awk-replacement one-liners instead of programs, and more.

    I hope nothing I've written can be taken as an argument against strictures or warnings. I merely place them in the proper light: as tools, not magic shields.
