I fully agree. Personally I already use quite a lot of those my self
and I bet a lot of components in Xfce will get a hard time to get them
compiling again (please add -Werror too), but it will greatly improve
the code quality (although some warnings/errors are just a bit

Also using -fstack-protector-all -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 in the list of
flags to do some buffer overflow detection in debug code.
