We're only reversing the sense of a flag in CVS.  I don't see what the
purpose of "wait a few days" would be.

Certainly I'd like to see whether -Wabi reports any warnings when building
any of KDE (including Qt), the C++ parts of Gnome, OpenOffice, and Mozilla.
However, the KDE folks tell me that the first issue is getting 3.4 to
build KDE at all; there appear to be many problems with stray semicolons
that the new parser rejects.  (This begs the question of whether the
new parser's rejection of extra semicolons, even though technically correct,
is too pedantic).
