Every warning that a compiler can throw makes sense for someone
who might need this.
Is this warning possible to turn off? Then you could do it.
But I prefer as default have more warnings, not less.

Well, OO should help to have less copy&pasted code, but some things
might be done in this way.
A warning on the overridden methods IMHO make sense.
