What does it mean? So far we're using levels for "the higher the number, the 
more warnings will be triggered, and the more likely it is that it is a false 

If you're going to reverse that, then its going to be a hell of a lot of work 
for a user to maintain the "level": if we add new levels, he has to write a 
configure check that, depending on the compiler version, changes the warning 
level. That doesn't make sense.

See my other patch, it is mostly finished (need to write some testcase and 
prepare a proper submission).

hmm. What if I like the pedantic warnings of level 1 and 3, but hate level 2?
