Good point. So +1 on the default being a warning, -1 on the error.
And just to make Andi (and me) happy, how about we call it:
since what it does is warn you if the environment is new/unknown.
As a follow-up, how hard is it to change the compiler used? Can we
just do this?
It would be great if that did it.
