For context: the plan is to enable the warning unconditionally
starting with 5.11. After that, the idea is making it an error as soon
as reasonable (e.g. 5.12 if no warnings remain by then).

However, if there is nobody planning to fix a given warning, then I'd
say documenting the problem with a `FIXME` comment (plus a change like
this or simply ignoring the return value) would be the best approach.
