I have always thought that seeing warnings either from lintian or gcc
-Wall shows carelessnes, which is not good in a production system.

Not because the warnings themselves, but because the bugs that might
get squished while fixing them. For example it might turn out when
lintian gets updated that I do some juicy interactivity with the
user in my postinst:)

BTW the policy manual seems to be a bit uneven on the issue. There is
a paragraph telling us that where we should do intersomething with
the user, and the necessary protection of debconf isn't mentioned

[I hope no one considers my bad jokes also as tasteless.]
