An interesting question is whether this should be done by means of a
global like *asdf-warnings* or whether it could be put into the
operation objects by means of an initarg.  Probably some combination is
possible (put it in the operation and then use around methods to
configure a dynamic variable).

Once again, we will be challenged by the fact that there is no funcall
wrapped around the full extent of performing an operation on a system.
