when I said ‘people’ I meant the people who were trying to
implement this change.
I said, survey results are open to interpretation so you and
I can see things differently. I think there is a significant
minority that said ‘no’. If you implement that change it
will definitely annoy this minority. Also, due to the nature
of the change, my assumption is that a subset of people that
said ‘yes’ did not appreciate the impact of the change so
when it is implemented they will wish they had voted ‘no’.

Thanks Ian for the survey.
Moving forward I do hope that 1) line
numbers are enabled by default in Luna and 2) people
spend a bit more time thinking about how to improve the
preferences for compiler warnings.
In "people spend a bit more time...", who
IMO, this survey confirms that enabling all warnings by
default wouldn't hurt the majority of users. The other part
can change their preferences individually, or at an
organization level for big companies who deliver their package
(just like those who want more warnings have to do now).
