Warnings need not stop you. I figure IDL should be capable of printing a
two-line warning message without crashing or anything. And in most
cases, warnings are there for the programmer to ignore.
Apart from that, a warning would of course only be in order if the
compilation was done from a different source (be it .pro or .sav) then
the already compiled version.
