Re: preprocessor/10613: Please make -Wtrigraphs the default

Looks good.  The only thing I have to say is that this bit of

is confusing.  I would say instead

  Most trigraphs in comments cannot affect the meaning of the program.
  However, a trigraph that would form an escaped newline (@samp{??/}
  at the end of a line) can, by changing where the comment begins or
  ends.  Therefore, only trigraphs that would form escaped newlines
  produce warnings inside a comment.

  This option is implied by @option{-Wall}.  If @option{-Wall} is not
  given, this option is still enabled unless trigraphs are enabled.
  To get trigraph conversion without warnings, but get the other
  @option{-Wall} warnings, use @samp{-trigraphs -Wall -Wno-trigraphs}.
