[erlang-questions] Proposal for -warning() directive

I've had a case where this would have been useful.  Not to have a  
directive explosion, I might also recommend -deprecated().  In fact, I  
would probably find that more useful than -warning.

Or maybe there should be a directive more like:

-emit(warning,"Something bad about this module.").
-emit(deprecated,"This disappears next version.").

Or I might be overthinking it.  But I do think this functionality in  
some form is useful.
