Cool, but probably not what I meant ;) as this hides it project-wide ?

I mean, it's good to have this warning enabled by default and only suppress it around code
that /I/ know it's bogus at. Otherwise, it /really/ wouldn't serve its purpose of pointing
where a PEBKAC^WLOGIC ERROR may occur...

Sort of like surround the variable declaration with 
{$WARN IDENTIFIER ON}  explicitly (then have code tools fold it so it won't pinch our eyes ;) )
