The topic has come up again, it's time to discuss the subject.  I
propose to try to avoid compiler warnings as much as possible in order

- have cleaner code,
- have important warnings not be drowned out,
- make FFmpeg a programming textbook.

This does not include warning fixes that slow things down or obfuscate
the code, but if in doubt I personally would err on the side of fixing
the warning.
