The idea is that -WB -Wno-B leaves C disabled, but -WB -Wno-A leaves it 
enabled (because -WB is more specific than -Wno-A, it takes precedence 
whatever the ordering of those two options).  If there were any option -WC 
or -Wno-C on the command line, the last such option would apply regardless 
of the -WA / -Wno-A / -WB / -Wno-B options (that much at least is already 
implemented for some option implications).

Even for that, you still need to move away from _set being a boolean, 
since there will be three values (default, explicit -WC / -Wno-C, 
controlled by some other option but not the most specific option).

Init() should I think ideally be just for the defaults (with _set 
replacing the present uses of -1 or 2 in Init to mean "not set").
