The name is too specific and can be misread:
- It is specific to -Werror, but other similar systems exist.
- It can be easily read an "now error" (i.e., a warning
should "now (be an) error").
Also I think it was recommended to *not* use -Werror by default as it
is too fragile. Maybe one should have a "developer mode" flag instead
that allows using -Werror?
