I couldn't find the original message Jeff was replying to so I could reply to
that.  I really hope we would start using enums for multistate switches, and
not magic values, ie:

	enum format_warnings
	{
	  FORMAT_WARN_NONE,
	  FORMAT_WARN,
	  FORMAT_WARN_NONLITERAL
	};

	extern enum format_warnings warn_format;
