Of course we could do an exception for Windows. But I am sure there is  
a nice way to tell the compiler that we are fine here. Don't get me  
wrong but warnings are most of the time useful, and but they are not  
if they are numerous.

You should really try to reduce the number of warnings on your host  
then :) (That's the whole point of -Werror)
