Please bear in mind that some folks, from whom we've heard here before, 
are *required* by their work to produce compiles free from warnings.  As 
suggested, this condition "I found _x_y_z_, and loaded it" is not an 
indication of anything "wrong."  The message is appropriate, but it 
should be clearly "Informational" rather than a warning.
