I am talking about an issue that is wrongly silenced by casting and stems from 
the same named warning category. Call that a different proble if you will, it's 
still the same category.

Treating warnings as errors is bad both because it breaks the build needlessly 
for harmless or minor issues, and because it increases the incentive to mute 
warnings instead of fixing actual bugs.
