This will make the package likely to FTBFS whenever the default compiler is
upgraded, someone tries to build with clang, etc. It's usually a bad idea
but somewhat manageable if you're looking carefully. In Debian proper, that
is -- derivatives will be pretty unhappy.
... but you also have -Wextra which makes the above FTBFS guaranteed.
I'd say uploads with this combo belong in experimental -- a worthy
development check -- but not in in a suite that's going to be released (and
most derivatives have a different cadence than Debian).
