Yes.  The goal of all this work has been to automatically separate out which
of these warnings are safe and which are not.

So far I did not consider such task as doable.  This work was about ~660
warnings while I have checked -Wconversion is at least 2500 warnings to solve.
With the FSF ChangeLogs and reviewing rules the situation is more difficult.

Cheap for future reviewing.  But more expensive for the initial change.
